I will pass the whole message on to my dad. I think he would be open to the
idea of including excerpts from this list in the Bulletin.
As for me, I think it's a great idea, but I feel that I am not qualified to
pick snippets out of the email that comes through the IRIS-L. If we do
include excerpts, I think someone with a better knowledge than I should
pick them out. I wouldn't want to inadvertently pick a message containing
inaccurate or even harmful information. While I have learned a thing or two
from my parents, I still consider myself an extreme novice. My expertise is
computer graphic design, which is why I am helping with the AIS Bulletin
and Web Page.
Plus, I must confess, I delete messages, and occasionally whole threads of
messages, without reading them at all, that don't interest me much (I
deleted the message you are referring to above, for example -- I'm too
dense to recognize its promise. I almost skipped this one!). I get large
volumes of email every day, which I can't possibly read.
Anyone wanna volunteer to pick a few messages every quarter for inclusion
in the AIS Bulletin?
