Errol-

There are a number of researchers that quite honestly don't have time to
wade through the nonsense in the various lists that are on the "net", and
for that reason I have tried to make sure they see items that they would be
interested in.  I have a number of people that I fax your UPDATES to
because they have no computer, and they are always very grateful.  In
return, they sometimes provide details that the list would find of
interest, which I tend to post.  Bruce does, indeed, have a computer.
However, he isn't "active" on the Internet and has become less involved
with Compuserve in recent months.

I don't know what Jean had tried to post (I've been trying to work with
both Jean and Bruce to make sure we don't waste bandwidth, and it was
mostly in his hand at this point), but as a list subscriber I would state
that I believe that it should have been posted if it was relevent to the
discussion.  I'm not sure how you are going to define when a person should
post on their own, or more importantly the limitation to quotation that you
will allow before that is triggered.

The particular thread involved here is probably getting out of hand, and
obviously some of those involved are far too close to the subject matter
and should probably seek help (sorry, couldn't help it).  As a list
moderator, I would be concerned about those who post material to the list
and then threaten legal action when others quote sections of it in their
reply, claiming copyright violation.  The explosive personalities involved
in this genre could tie up resources in a legal battle, and since this list
is moderated there is (I believe) greater exposure to inclusion in any
legal entanglement.

I will forward your message to Bruce, but I couldn't speculate as to
whether he'll want to get directly involved.

If this is a policy of the list, I would be interested in the defined
limitations.
