    I wouldn't be so sure, my guess there are a lot more who care but
    figure it's not worth the effort.

    Doesn't the FAQ also mention the topic headings, most notably the NBC
    header? I don't think a single one of more than 30 messages about
    this endless(ly boring) topic have had an NBC header.

   "Amen" to that.

     And please, ignore the topic headers because they obviously don't apply to
     the select group that finds this private conversation fascinating.

     Sorry to make such a deal about this subject, I was hoping it would
     eventually go away, four days later I'm still waiting. The message was
     signed as list co-owner, giving it some semi-official status and was
     attempting to speak for the list at large (see comment #1).  It also
     completely missed the topic header issue and this whole conversation seems
     to me to be "violating Blues-L guidelines in the least".
