I heard about CJ when it was featured as TipWorld's Mailing List of the Day
for 10/23/97.  They described the list as follows:

  CJ for short, this is one of many lists sponsored by the Computer
  Professionals for Social Responsibility. A moderated forum to talk
  about anything you want, recent posts include juicy conspiracy
  theories about Princess Diana's death, the increasing emergence
  of global monopolies, and international corruption. Perspectives
  from around the world, specially written articles, quotes, and
  cross-postings of other newsletters are common.

As a computer professional, I thought it sounded interesting so I decided
to subscribe and check it out.  I'm not someone that is likely to post much
to a list, but I do enjoy reading the articles.  I have found them to be
well written, entertaining and often thought provoking.

About the Global Economy we can do little.  However, if the mysterious
automobile(s) that were seen to emerge from the tunnel moments after the
crash were to be idendified and if under questionning some damnable, but
solid, piece of evidence were to emerge, the princess story would become
a very exciting story indeed.

As for TWA Flight 800 there is plenty of evidence that U.S. Navy missile
practice went awry with some kind of missile hitting flight 800.  Anyone
who denies this simply hasn't been reading all the evidence.

So I for one appreciat Richard Moore's willingness to explore these
fringe theories. In fact I would dearly love to hear more.  For
instance, there was for awhile an advertisement on Usenet re: a video
that had been produced which supposedly contained some incriminating
evidence regarding Di's death.  I'd love to hear more about the evidence
that was on that video.

If higher powers could get away with the murders of JFK, RFK, Malcom X,
and MLK, they could certainly get away with the murder of a princess (so
as to regain complete control over the upbringing of the future king of
England) and so as to prevent Di from stealing their thunder, so to
speak, and doing things like making a video on the horrendous damage to
millions of children's lives that resulted from the British
participation in the Gulf War.

Subject: How I heard about cj

I got [what I assumed to be] spam about cj;  I read it, and subscribed,
assuming this is a project of Computer Professionals for Social
Responsibilty, of which I am or was a member.  I am expecting 'stuff' about
computer technology policies and their effects on everyday life for most of
us --- e.g. are Netdays, or federal $ for computers-in-the-classroom,
investments in education, or public subsidies for Silicon Valley?

Dear Richard:


In terms of expectations, have none. I merely hope is that the thoughts,
opinions, reports, conjecture, hypotheses, etc., I receive will be
stimulating, informative, thought-provoking, horizon-broadening, etc. I
will not even mind "maddening" so long as one or more of the other
criteria is consistently met.

Thanks for your invitation to comment. Had not yet received enough
messages to make me want to "jump in" on anything in particular.
