A discussion list for music-related DSP.

Posted 22 Aug 2015:

Hi everyone, Douglas the list admin here.

I've been away and haven't really been monitoring the list recently. It's been full of
bad feelings, unpleasant interactions, and macho posturing. Really not much that I
find interesting. I just want to reiterate a few things about the list.

I'm loathe to make or enforce rules. But the list has been pretty much useless for the
majority of subscribers for the last year or so. I know this because many of them have
written to complain. It's certainly not useful to me.

I've also had several reports of people trying to unsubscribe other people and other
childish behavior. Come on.


* Please limit yourself to two well-considered posts per day. Take it off list if you need
more than that.

* No personal attacks. I'm just going to unsub people who are insulting. Sorry.

* Please stop making macho comments about "first year EE students know this" and
blahblahblah. This list is for anyone with an interest in sound and dsp. No topic is too
basic, and complete beginners are welcome.

I will happily unsubscribe people who find they can't consistently follow these

The current list climate is hostile and self-aggrandizing. No beginner, gentle coder, or
friendly hobbyist is going to post to such a list. If you can't help make the list friendly
to everyone, please leave. This isn't the list for you.
