might not the real issue for Tweeters be that while this service is
free to all of us who have been permitted to join it, someone -- the
owner -- is paying for the bandwidth & the archiving, etc. and that
person has a right to ask that everyone stay on the topic for which he
is funding the service for all the rest of us? Tweeters is not about
our first amendment rights, it is about the courtesy of respecting
someone who is benefiting all the rest of us.
