Neil Smith, and others. Of course, people will be permitted to discuss anything. I'm not responsible for the consequences, though, if someone comes on and starts trashing libertarian philosophies. It's your email box, not mine. I'm not going to censor anyone, nor am I going to decide who should and shouldn't be allowed on here. I'm just the guy who sweeps the floors and empties the ashtrays. Messages meant for the general list should be sent to libfic-l(at)peak.org. To subscribe, send e-mail to majordomo(at)peak.org
with subscribe libfic-l
in the body of the message. If you want to unsubscribe, send e-mail to majordomo(at)peak.org with
unsubscribe libfic-l
