Another possibility that deserves consideration would be for the
poster to have the English translation on hand but not post it.
Those desiring to see it could send private mail and request it--
presumably after they have taken some time to work through it on
their own.  It seems to me that this serves the dual goal of keeping
list traffic down and making people think a little before giving
them the answer.  {{:-)  I'll admit that it makes a little more work
for the poster, but we also might gain some stats on how many people
really *want* the translation.  If posters find they are simply
deluged with requests for the translation, we could change the
strategy.  Thoughts?
