I own a Triumph TR 6 and a Kia Sephia. I belong to mailing lists dealing
with Triumphs, and British cars and a news group on Kias. I would not be
happy seeing a bunch of stuff about Kias regularly showing up on the Triumph
list and nether would most of the Triumph owners there.
Likewise, I don't really want to see modern jazz stuff on the Dixieland list
that is not what it is for nor why I am reading the list. If I wanted
information about modern jazz - I don't, it leaves me cold- I'd subscribe to
a list or newsgroup about that.
