Here's the way I see it. If someone takes this (or any) list and copies it
to their web page, the writers whose words are being preserved have only
two fair and reasonable reactions:
1) thanks that their writing will be available on a continuing basis, to a
2) appreciation for the individual who will be putting out effort to
maintain the web page
I just don't understand how anyone can get so chippy about letters written
off-the-cuff to a public group. Comparing this to works of art? Accusing
people of making big bucks off our discussions of gramar and the merits of
HTML? And please don't swamp my e-mail with bleatings of moral outrage.
