hi David and all,
I don't know if you didn't follow some threads but here are some examples
of greasy jokes:

- do you know how many feminists are necessary to change a lightbulb? 2:
One to change the lightbulb, and one to s**k my c**k.
[I think all users are old enough to read this, and at least it's a
humorous tone, not purely offensive like some mails in the last weeks]

I am not old enough to consider this a joke and I am quite old ;-) but ok
I also know I don't have a good sense of humor

Edmund:   Baldrick, fetch my Incredibly Strong Ale...!

Monk:  Good god!  Not Dr McGloo's Amber Enema...?

Edmund:  Pah! -- a drink for schoolgirls...

Partridge:  Surely not Strollop's Lobster Scrumpy...?

Edmund:  No -- it is Blackadder's Bowel Basher!

\runs off singing "I'm Merlin, The Happy Pig!"

and not to forget the call for 'sexy' externals included in some mail that
I will not repeat.

I am very sorry to keep on with this discussion but I would like to ask
the list to consider that some of us are trying to use the mailing list as
an educational resource, so when there are toasts for school girls, and
some consensus about laughing together on silly anti feminist jokes just
to name a few factors... err I don't think this works anymore.

I really didn't want to post another OT but to be blind about the facts is
just a bit too much for me to keep silent.
