I used to think that way myself, but have changed my mind. The problem is
that if you let some folks air their political opinions, someone with a
different persuasion will get irritated what they view as the politicization
of the list. Invariably they respond, and since both parties usually want
the "last word", we're off to the races again.  We are a fractious clan, and
love to argue. Personally I don't mind such things, but historically it's
pretty clear that many list members do.

Just my 2 cents...
