Dear Members,

Due to a number of personal commitments, I am not able
to monitor this list as closely as I could in the past.
I beg of you to therefore exert self-control in your
postings to the list.

The comments of one member regarding the cost of a magazine
has caused some stir.  The words used were brusque and
regrettable.  At the same time, I think public demands
that the author "apologize to everyone or unsubscribe" 
are also excessive. This smacks of a fatwa which is really
uncharacteristic of our society. The original poster has 
no doubt transgressed rules of social etiquette but really 
does not deserve to be banished from the face of the earth.

I urge all of you to remain calm when placed in these
situations. Please don't let your emotions dictate your
words.  And please don't convert every sort of offense
committed by someone as cause for a personal crusade.

Thanking you for your continued participation in our list,
Mani
