Apparently off topic

Try the Hebraisticum, from Professor Lehman's site. Of course there is NO traffic on
it. I can't seem to find his webpage, but he is also subscribed to this list, so if you
plead to him, maybe he will pop up and direct you.
I do have to say that I like being able to be subscribed to just one list where I can get a
few mails a day on a variety of subjects. The thought of subscribing to ANE, TC,
Hebrew, etc. and getting 95 mails a day is not too appetizing.
Perhaps if you were to contribute something about Hebrew grammar to the list, you
might be able to get something going. I don't think the lack of grammar topics on the
list is a result of the numerous TC posts. Do you?
You may also be able to solve some of your headaches by using a sort of auto-ignore.
I use Lingomail (free downloads at www.lingomail.com) and I can specify certain
addresses which will get any incoming mail from that address sent immediately to the
trash can. Maybe Explorer or Netscape or whatever you use has such a feature, and
you can put Ian's incoming posts in the trash without even having to see them. ;-)
(This was just a joke Ian)
