i did this because there's a lot of spoofing going on -- from viruses,
from spammers, etc. and it's been a bother on other lists i admin. the
lowest i've seen is a 17k message, so i set the limit to be right under
that.  if folks want it changed back, that's fine, i just figured better
safe than sorry.


p.s. dave says that even his (lunatic) ravings tend to be under the 15k
mark...  i'm dubious, but that's what he says.
