Re: [NTLK] Is there a Newton mailing list?

I think that I speak for some fellas out there too: I have no
problems with OT discussions, as long as they are Newton related, I
love to hearing user stories here. I love to hear how Newton affects
your lives. I love to hear a housewife does her groceries using the
Newton. I did miss the story of the Marine and I am sorry that I
missed his story since I served myself and I had my Newton with me too.

What I do not want to do is read about this political stuff in the
Newtontalk list. If I want to read something like that I would go to
political.misc or something like it. I am a liberal guy, I don't mind
if you are gay, lesbian, democratic, republican, green, red or yellow
with violet dots, I don't mind if you are saving whales or if you are
a Magnate of a Nuclear waste disposal company. And frankly I don't
care about for who you vote, according to me it might be Ed the horse.

I don't mind as long as you don't bug me with it here. Focus on the
cause this list is dedicated to, focus on Newton. Please, now come on...
