I'm not surprised you say that, but unlike your site whose mission is to provide lists for an elite who are both in a position to affect their mail servers and consider that part of their job, what we're about is providing communities for as many of the end-users in our sphere of interest as we can. Making their ISPs work properly is between us and their ISP; as far as they're concerned, they can just move their community to Yahoo and forget about our techy fascism if we pull something like that.
