Yes, I'm well aware of this.  An open source support group is a great
idea.  I just take issue with:

You might be surprised to know that this list isn't ONLY for students,
but also support personnel and other professionals in the UNC community.

This is clearly stated in the 'welcome' message to the list:

and:

So, basically there are many on the list who are here for technical
support and information on Linux (and Linux apps) specifically and could
really care less about student elections, graduate or otherwise.

Thanks,
