This is a croquet list. I think it would be appropriate to keep all
discussions relevant to the topic. Personal conversations that have
less than 5% (by volume) of the text actually related to Croquet don't
interest me as a croquet-user list subscriber.
This is common etiquette; is any further discussion this topic worthwhile?
Re: dang, I didn't mean to post this last to the whole list

i think further discussion in the form of a "hear hear!" might be worthwhile.
Sorry that your self prophecy of others insensate retaliation came true. I feel the issue is, Croquet-User list propose is "Bulletin Board list" VS "Issues list needing to bring immediate attention to everyone for resolution." I do encourage you making blog like many others do. Is the reason against a blog the lower amount of interaction of ideas with others, which is what the list brings, attention? Mandating attention from others through the list, however, doesn't after a while bring any attention once everyone starts to ignore all of Paul's posts. In a blog, people search for the most relevant topics to themselves and reply to those topics and ideas. After discussion from the ideas and topics on the blog, then post only the most important and relevant to the Croquet-User list. This amount of relevancy would satisfy even those few with most extreme view.
