I haven't read Robert Bohle's message yet, but I did save it to read
later. Exactly what are we becoming when we actively chase someone
off the list? The message seemed to be rather appropriate material,
who cares if the line breaks aren't perfect? We need to get to the
point where we deal with minor annoyances as minor annoyances, and
not as life-threatening dangers.
I say, if Robert Bohle can show me a thing or two about how people
read, he can certainly be a valuable contributor to a list that
pretends to be about writing better.
