   This isn't a strictly public forum. The list owners can kick and ban
any of us. This is helpful for other reasons like spam. Trivializing this
possibility is what is immature.

   We're expected to act with a level of decorum consistent with the
wishes of our host. That's why there's another separate list for
discussing this problem in depth.

   That is total nonsense. At the very least they could give us some
idea of whether or not they will have something (anything) in place
before zap2it goes offline. They could give some indication that they
are making progress towards whatever they are working on.

    That's the mushroom treatment that I was complaining about.

    It is by no reasonable standard reassuring.
