Like Gary Trucks and many others, most of us prefer to participate in hosta-open
because it is open. I agree with Gary. This is not the place for Jim's
There is freedom of expression here. With freedom comes rersponsibility
NOT to harm others
I think that most of us wish that any type of irresponsibility by those
using hosta-open be self controlled. We have no rules, no hosta police,
no violence, no hatred and we prefer no vice, corruption or other types
of breaking of social customs to occur. This requires that every participant
be in control of his own actions.
I have a wonderful, sweet sixteen granddaughter who is very interested
in and knows a lot about hostas, computers, science, writing and
hosta gardening. I encourage her to learn more about these subjects by
reading hosta-open discussions. But I don't want to do this if there
are inappropriate crude jokes without redeaming social or hosta value.
I join with the majority in asking Jim to help make hosta-open a first
class listserv for our group of hosta friends, not anything less
thick skinned but I don't think that this is the place for Jim's
Theres my vote.
