Brian:
As the list administrator, you can direct what topics can be discussed,
but on 1/30/06 you said, "Our list is primarily for discussion of AMRadio
in regard to operating, equipment, tech questions, answers, scheds, news,
and friendly discussion for those who enjoy our niche of the hobby. 
Announcements of threatening news against our part of ham radio is
perfectly acceptable"

As Don pointed out, K1MAN has a history with the AM community. Besides
what Don cited, K1MAN has broadcast his "bulletin service" on 3890 for
years on AM and sometimes even below that frequency. W1AW has been doing
their voice bulletins on the 40 meter AM "calling frequency" for years
using the SSB mode. Truly both of their amateur activities have had an
impact on the AM community for many years.

I also question why someone would choose to leave the list rather than
exercising the delete button on their computer,  when messages not in
their interest, come up.

In my opinion, Amateur Radio is "threatened"(loosely put) with many
possible changes over the next few years which directly impacts the AM
community, and maybe for many, their current AM rigs on the air. General
amateur radio discussions which may or may not directly impact AM
operations should not be discouraged. Being aware of ARRL/W1AW activities
or FCC activities is very important as we move forward in amateur radio.
