If you get freedom to spout forth in some mailing-list, that qualifies
a "true victory of Liberation Anthropology"? I had thought better of
liberation anthropology. Do you ever stop to think that what happens
on mailing lists is really relatively unimportant in the global
scheme of things? People are starving, people are being genocided,
and you are crowing about having got posting rights to some list...

Also, while I'm happy that you can post to ASUACA, I (and I suspect the
other members of this list) didn't really need to know all about it.
