why are u doing this joel?
Joel, I bet you didn't realize that you were creating a chat group for anxious, codependent coders.... LOL
ubaid, man, just calm down and sign up for the mailing list. you'll never get spammed, and it is really very easy to remove yourself from the list if you never want to be updated again. joel has many readers who post here - have you ever heard anyone complain about joel sending out incessant and annoying mail?
because it's free so he can do whatever he wants
But... but.. Joel is DOING WHAT HE WANTS TO DO WITH THIS BOARD! That is OUTRAGEOUS!!!!
LOL! Excellent post, Bored.

Hey, I'm all for co-dependency. It makes for the best reading on a slow day when I don't really want to do the crap I need to do...
Quick, somebody get a patent on the 'JoelOnSoftware' board. :)
I think the original poster has a legitimate question.
He's probably doing it (whatever it is), for Fun and Profit.
i guess i'm getting taken all out of context here. i had already subscribed to the mailing list before my post. i was just wondering what the idea or reasoning behind the move was, that's all :)
You're not taken out of context, it's just that Joel explained why. The google search for "heisenberg effects" has a good 1st link.
The answer was explained in the article. If you're worried about spam, sign up through sneakemail.com
