Hello JMS...

I was reading a old post of your's about moderation and "saw" this
word: "blipped".  In a show, Bester used "Blip" (I think) to refer to
telepaths that where rogue.  In your moderation post, you used it as
to mean deleted. ("...then you warn, you warn a second time, and then
and ONLY then do you delete.  A blipped message should be the tool of
last resort, not the instrument of first choice.")

Are there different meanings...  Example: "bad" can be good or bad.

Else is Bester saying "that rogue telepaths should be deleted or

jackb (using my wife's machine)

Just different meanings to the word; no intended overlap.
