On blocking the list (was Re: viruses after the downtime?)

Me, I'm nomail, and just read (and don't read) messages at the archive.

Common world idioms

Idioms just are very puzzling to me, and I greatly dislike them. 'Up in the air' is
one example. Does it mean 'unnecessary', 'incomprehensible', 'maybe', or what?
(I had to ask the writer for an explanation for that one.) I'm a native English
speaker, but I still don't understand many of the idiomatic expressions that it
employs for daily life... :))
