With all fairness to everyone...we DO need to "stay on track" with the list
and I know we do have a DELETE key...but please do remember the purpose of
this list serve. We had a recent scare about "losing this list" and some of
the messages that have been appearing lately would certainly give them
(meaning the Getty board members) reason to "rethink whether the list is
serving it's purpose".
The diet IS being "run into the ground". If you don't have anything else to
say or than to talk about dieting, talk about YOUR philosophy of art. Get a
thread started about something that applies to "ART"...
>... is right about what our list is for, but can anyone resist the
subject of weight loss now and then?
But why keep on....
And there's nothing wrong with asking "people to pray for someone or to
remember them in their prayers"...but don't Reply and tell ME and "the rest
of the world "you're going to do...write that person privately. If you
don't know how to do this...when you hit the "reply to" button and the
message comes up...change the address from ArtsEdNet List to that person's
Don't write me back and tell me to how hit the DELETE button. I know it's
there and I know how to use it and I spend MORE time hitting that button
sometimes rather than reading.
And I certainly think there is nothing wrong with bringing up something that
doesn't apply to "art education"....but think how many times people will hit
the "reply button" and write..."me too"...when no one even knows what the
message applies to...
When someone suggests that we "get back on track"...that's no reason for
someone to write in and tell them "online on the list" to hit the delete.
That also should be done privately and directly to the person!
Remember...this is just MY opinion....
