I wrote yesterday about some of the things Jude Basile said when he spoke to TLC alumni in Dallas in November.
Another thing he promised, or rather simply noted, was that changes would be coming to the listserve. He didn't specify what those changes were, but I cringed, knowing that changes like this rarely work out the way the people who made them anticipated. The Law of Unintended Consequences soon takes effect and the attempt to curtail what is perceived as "objectionable" speech actually serves to amplify it.
But, in my experience, those with the power to change listserve rules rarely realize the effect of their actions until they enact them, and learn the hard way.
So what changes, if any, do you think TLC, Inc., will make to the listserve?
More importantly, will they work out as planned?
