If the messages SCOUTS-L is sending constitute 50% of the net traffic,
I'd hardly call it a critical business resource. I agree though that
what is really needed is to educate the rest of the company on things
they can properly use the 'net for. Rather than cut down your traffic,
you should be increasing the traffic from the rest of the staff
(hopefully, business oriented of course).
