I like her art. I believe that she is the woman who was once active on the List many years ago and for some reason when I first came on the list, some of you thought I was her.

By "arbitrary," I didn't mean "arbitrated." I've seen the word mostly in things like faculty handbooks and written grievances brought by my union, and it's often paired with "capricious." To call an action arbitrary (or arbitrary and capricious) essentially means it's an unreasonable action...an action that calls for arbitration (or litigation) between the parties. In a more informal sense, calling the propositions of a literary commentator arbitrary expresses one's own judgment, but also calls on the reader to be the judge in a sort of appeals court. One is asking the reader to affirm one's own judgment (that the theses of the commentator are arbitrary and cannot be sustained). pat sloane
