Subject: . . .fun

Re ads-l as "infotainment" or "recreation":

I recently unsubscribed to wordplay-l (WordPlay-L[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]Levels.UniSA.Edu.Au)

because I was getting too much "fun." It's a great list, and it offers

insights into words from all over the English world. But the volume of

e-mail was too great. I kept ads-l because occasionally I have a

serious word question that I think the American Dialect Society can

help me with. That was what "Copy Editor" newletter promised when it

recommended ads-l. Many of you have answered my questions, and I thank

you (I neglected to do that before). So keep up the fun, but be aware

that some of us need to be serious sometimes.
