Mark and Charlotte,
I also agree with your observations about the overall tone of this listserv.
Perhaps the membership is getting comfortable with each other and letting
off steam...we all know about stress in our positions! I have felt
uncomfortable with some of the bantering that has happened lately. It seems
antithetical to our purposes. We are all creative, informed and active
people; we're bound to have some differences! Like our subject, we should
celebrate our diversity! Isn't that what makes life interesting?
And we all have demanding jobs, which need our energy...what a shame to
waste it in verbal posturing! Let's just share ideas, enjoy each other, and
continue to learn.
I have felt a real sense of community here, and although I have disagreed
with peoples' opinions, I never felt the need to discourage them. Use that
energy...grow from it!
Enough said. I'm happy to have this resource.
