Can I make a personal plea that this month we don't discuss the problems on
the list? People don't seem to realise that almost anything they say is
likely be a clue for someone, and it seems to have got worse in recent

Example of acceptable comments:

* Oh no, I've just noticed that MTV has got down to 31.41 strokes.

Examples of unacceptable comments:

* Can we assume that all widgets have positive size?
* I'm really struggling with the test with all those zeros in.

I'm not trying to be dictatorial here. (Maybe I'm succeeding, but I'm not
trying, honest. :-) It's just that it's a better game if people don't
comment at all until the post-mortem.
