This is not a surprise to me.  Consider who is more likely to subscribe to
a mailing list like this one; a product of assembly line schooling or a
self-taught?  Matter of fact, seems like a few subscribers are
over-achievers.  Which is a good thing.  ;)

In the old days (early 90's), usenet had many technical newsgroups with
actual professors and grad students.  Now, most technical newsgroups are
full of wannabee's arguing about superficial things.  It is rare to find
an outlet like this mailing list.  Obviously, it's going to attract a
certain type of people.  I've joined quite a number of other mailing lists
that claim to be technical.  But after a few months, I was usually
disappointed.  This list has been interesting so far...  ;-)
