This raises the interesting question of why more of the roughly 100 people
on this list do not participate, either by posting material of their own or
pitching in during discussions and debates. I think it's unfortunate, and
hope that some of the "lurkers" out there (I use quotation marks to indicate
that I do not use this term in the pejorative sense but the neutral internet
list serve sense) will consider chiming in more often. They certainly must
have opinions to express, and there is certainly nothing stopping them from
doing so.
