    I genuinely understand that you can't remain silent when you feel
this way. And this is not a trivial matter of doctrine.
But I feel there is better way of  respectfully discussing things
without engaging in  name calling and such other adrenalin driven war of

words. I debated a lot before writing this mail. I've seen that many
nettors are afraid of expressing themselves esp if we have any
difference of opinion, for fear of being ridiculed without being given a
second thought.  This discussion forum is meant to be an open platform
where everyone can express their opinions freely, ask questions, learn
from others...  If there is such an inaccessibility to the list then
I think the purpose is not fulfilled.

    Having learnt so much from this list from the time it started, I
thought I would share my concern with everyone. Hope you take this in
the right spirit.  I do not mean to disrespect you by any stretch of
imagination. I can't even think of that. There is so much that we learn
from you.
