Since I am replying to John's post, I am letting the ADMIN tag stay, 
but don't mean to construe by using it, that I have any 
administrative power, which I certainly don't.  I am writing 'in re.'

I concur that the tone of the 2002 Symposium discussion bordered on
getting out of hand.  I just want to say there was no attack of any 
sort.  I have every respect for Gerry and the monumental tasks he has 
performed in assemblying and administrating the symposium  on his own 
time.  He was and is commended for stepping in and taking over at a 
very critical time.  (See old threads in the Mallorn Archives)

There was a statement about not reading and following through with 
directions.  I will close this by saying that it WAS because we read
the directions that the 2002 Iris Symposium thread was initiated.  It
was because we differed on the interpretation of those directions 
that the thread got somewhat off track.

Thanks, also, to Donald Eaves for his counsel and astute ability to
summarize the issue with cool brevity.

Vote your 25 Tall Bearded Favorites and send the ballot in to your 
RVP if you are a bearded fan and are of mind to do it.  If you are 
not 'bearded,' go back to Mallorn again and relive those happy days 
found in 'A Modest Proposal.'  If you don't believe in polls, then do 
what you will.   Check on MAYTAG RED in the archives and on Iris-
Photos.  You're in for a laugh or two.
