Dear Sponsor Jim!!!
I regret to advise that over the past few weeks Command D has received a
lot of use!!!
The philosophy of the discussion is a bit over my realm of comprehension.
I can understand why people have signed off.
The dilemma is that unless such discussions receive some air time, what is
the point of a discussion group.  Having said that, voluntary restraint on
the part of the perpetrators would be desirable, but when a topic of
particular personal interest gets up some steam or momentum, it may be
darned hard to "rub gravel on the head" as Richard Zander suggested.
I do think now, however, that before the list loses membership entirely, it
would be appropriate for the principal proponents to either call time out
or continue round 15 in private.
