Thanks for putting up with the long, long discussion my original intemperate
complaint sparked.  (A good friend who's also on the list privately said to
me "See what you started?", weeks ago.)

Thank you as well for hosting all of this at no charge to the group's members,
something for which we are all grateful (even if it does not appear so from
time to time).

Having managed multiple mailing lists over the decades, I applaud your efforts
to keep this a vibrant, civil place to discuss broadly our mutual interests.

                                                                Best regards,
