my a.m. email wasn't directed at you. it was directed at
the mailing list. if you made a point that was germane
to my subject header and i missed it, then, in plain

with due respect, I'd ask you to read the last posting I made (which
I've copied below) to the list. If this isn't clear enough, what other
language would you like me to write it in, because I can't make it any
clearer in plain English;

Is it now not clear that we are intending to do none of those things you suggest and excuse me, but since when did the CR become the WWW clearing house for all classic information ? My own website is built round contributions of which more than 75 per cent are from "readers" who are not the remotest bit interested in group discussions or have even heard of CR. It just a case of eating Elephants.
So as not to go behind anyones back, I'll ask this on-list. Can you please ask for this thread to be stopped ? It is counterproductive to the whole point of this list, too which we intend to pose no threat.
