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.
