Actually, it isn't a Usenet newsgroup, but a mailing list.

I'm trying very hard not to write angry words in reply.  I'm not a
fighter, I don't find fighting fun to watch, and I truly detest the
useless sneer term term "PC", much less being accused of it because
what I like to do for fun is different from someone else's idea and
vice versa.

Would you please explain why condoms are so huge or expensive that
they'll crowd out other supplies -- why we can't have both, especially
if stuff is donated?

Would you care to explain why conditions at events years past have
anything *whatsoever* to do with useful medical kits today?  We're not
*buying* supplies for those events.

This also leaves aside the question of whether first aid kits were
originally designed for fighters anyway.  Did anyone turn away
non-fighters?  Did they only get items useful for fighters?  I hardly
think anyone at this remove can say.
