However, the Humbug lists do have specific charters on them, and we would
very much prefer that people stuck to them.

In the case of the Humbug 'General' list, that _does_ mean that messages
with no useful content, such as "I like mutt", "I'm trying a new email
client", "[ Humbug *General* list", "ME TOO", "Yay!!", etc should not be
sent to this list.

Instead, the Humbug 'Chat' list does exist for your non-serious posting
pleasure.  Please do use it.  Its ready for your subscription at:

	majordomo at lists.humbug.org.au
