Re: [vox] Stallman on Slashdot

Quoting Peter Jay Salzman (p@dirac.org):

Well, that's the important part, I guess.  Though it's a little 
hard on _you_, since it means you can't express an offhand opinion
without the risk of it being construed as list policy.

On mailing list I run, the rule is that I'm not speaking as listowner
unless I'm either posting from the foo-owner address (which makes it
obvious) or specifically say I am doing so.  Otherwise, it would strike
me as unreasonable to expect other people to figure out which "hat" 
I'm wearing at a given moment.

Anyhow, thanks for clarifying.
