Hmm, can you say "overreact"?  The gist that I got was that the list 
owners want to know who we are, that's all.  I've seen a wide array 
of viewpoints expressed here and haven't seen any particular bias 
against "unqualified" views or posters.  The list owners are perfectly 
within their rights to ask us to identify ourselves, so I really don't 
get what the gripe is.  I don't have a problem telling Orion who I am 
and what my interest in the field is; do you?
