Speaking for myself, I'll say no: "political discussions" (in this case
the question of government funding for humanities) are tied up with what
academic music theorists do.  If some people choose to unsubscribe because
they don't want to read such discussions, so be it.

As no one representing the SMT board has weighed in, I accept that as a
tacit agreement that such issues are valid discussion topics on SMT-TALK.
