The problem is Harald, we haven't even seen a reasonable attempt beyond
your original document which was instituted in its entirety despite
substantial debate on specific provisions. There is also the issue of
which list an individual is subscribed to by default, which I strongly
believe should be the *unfiltered* list. I am quite capable and happy to
spend the 30 seconds or so it takes to subscribe to the filtered list.
However this too didn't seem to be up for compromise. 

So please explain to me how exactly you are attempting to reach 
a compromise position.
