One list, please. 

If people really, really don't want to read about anything but Missouri
sightings, we could agree to make it clear in the subject line of our
e-mail whether or not it included only sightings, sightings and opinion,
requests for information about mammals, or whatever.

As controversies on fandom listservers go, the ones on mobirds are usually
comparatively genteel.  When tempers flare, someone almost always suggests
that we cool off, and we usually do. And, as far as I know, no one in of
the recent threads has said or suggested that ANY ONE of us is scum, even
if they vehemently disagree with what we say.
