Well, I've been off the listserv quite awhile for other reasons and I come
back to find that...oh no...it's becoming a "message or massage" board for
politics????!!!

I do think that as well meaning as some may be, you won't
get anywhere trying to keep folks (who've obviously made it a
"pasttime") from interjecting political hodge podge into their comments
(short of barring them from the listserv).  They're going to do it wherever
they find a supposed audience.  Heck, you ever try to keep an avid golfer
from talking about golf, an avid musician off the stage, an avid racer off
the track?  You all know that this "political ranting," which historically
has always been a pasttime for some, has for whatever reason become
seemingly more pervasive as a pasttime today.  I'm thinking it may soon
become an Olympic sport!!!  I suspect, and I'm certainly not a
psychologist, sociologist, nor a historian, but I'm guessing that it
has something to do with where our society has evolved to at this point in
our history.  Perhaps our brains are evolving to a point where we're less
"creative and imaginative."  I don't know....

So anyway, I think the easiest solution is our tried and true reaction of
just deleting without reading as soon as we realize where the post is
going.  And I think we're all used to that in online communicaton.  Heck I
used to do it all the time to my ex's emails! ;-)  In fact I'll stop
writing now because most of you probably deleted my post before even
getting to this line!  And unfortunately if you've gotten to this point
you've gone way to far because this is the end!

Have a great day,
Gus
