Re: REF: Patently Red, and the Archives

I really think the informality of the arena is clearly apparent and generally 
understood, Bob, and I certainly did not intend to offer unqualified 
endorsement of all content in referring people to the Archives.The Archives are 
nothing but the posts that have appeared on this list over the years in all their 
unedited glory.

One should not assume that everything posted to this list, or found in the 
Archives,  is authoritative or definitive on any subject, although the list has 
had benefit of some remarkable expertise over the years, and I believe it has 
tended to be pretty self-cleansing with regard to posts of unsound material. 

And it seems to me that very few articles, or books, however rigorously 
written, and austerely edited, and peer reviewed, are deemed to be the last word on 
their subject into perpetuity, either.
