Now wait just a minute.
Sorry I don't have time. You have fun in your way;
I'll have fun in mine. I suspect you may be confusing this
world of dynamic print with the kind of thing you find
in books and journals. Different rules, my friend.
Since you are offering me the opportunity to have it
both ways I think I will take it. Or, in your words:
"If a person's serious thinking is always going to raise disdain and
approbation from the list how can serious learning take place."
Wasn't it Groucho who said, "If you come to a fork in the road,
If you expect serious learning to happen on this list,
you may just be in for a crap shoot. All the serious learners
have long since vacated the premises, with a few exceptions
perhaps. Rickard is absolutely invaluable, and you should pay
attention to anything he has to say. I was here at the start,
then after a somewhat lengthy hiatus I returned to something
less than a full hearse as my undertaker friend would say.
