Efficiency.  Proper forum.  All that sort of thing.  Besides, in my experience 
I usually
get a copy of each spam in my personaly mailbox as well as the copy sent to 
each mailing
list I read.

Nor was it uninteresting to the world that an experiment should be fairly and
fully made whether freedom of discussion, unaided by power, is not sufficient
for the propagation and protection of truth: whether a government conducting
itself in the true spirit of its constitution with zeal and purity and doing no
act which it would be unwilling the whole world should witness can be written
down by falsehood and defamation.  The experiment has been tried; [we] have
witnessed the scene; our fellow citizens have looked on, cool and collected.
They saw the latent source from which these outrages proceeded; they gathered
around their public functionaries, and when the Constitution called them to the
decision by suffrage, they pronounced their verdict, honorable to those who had
served them and consolatory to the friend of man who believes he may be
intrusted with his own affairs.
