If Joe can be persuaded that his political postings are not really anything
to do with memetics, then I'm happy for him to continue to contribute,
because when he's talking about memes and related theory he contributes in a
useful (if sometimes antagonistic) manner.
However, is that likely? He seems to be as trapped into posting about Iraq
as that bloke a couple of years ago who kept going on about mandelas and UP
and DOWN and all that crap, who ironically Joe was instrumental in sending
I think he needs to be reminded of the context of the running and maintenace
of the list- on a British University server, for the purpose of open, but
informed discussion of memetics. It's not a US chat-room intended for
anybody to spout whatever they like on any topic, and doing that is taking
unfair advantage of the spirit of open discussion of memetics the list is
intended to serve.
