At the risk of repeating myself to long-standing list members, I'd
like to remind everyone that although there are a lot of us who are
academically minded there are those who are not. Please will everyone
remember this when replying to messages as emails are notorious for
being vehicles for misinterpretations and misunderstandings.
Likewise,if you feel passionately about something, please say so -
others can, and sadly do, put stresses on words where you hadnt
intended them to and misinterpret your words. Use emoticons (see
http://messenger.msn.com/resource/Emoticons.aspx?mkt=en-gb for some,
I'm sure there are many more lists) to help others see what you were
Finally, don't go out to have the final word every time. It comes
across as being hostile to some people. We have lost members because
of some people insisting on having the last word and hammering a
thread to death and beyond in the pursuit of the last word.
I am not naming names now, but I will if I really feel I have no
choice and if things do not settle down.
