RE: OT: complaints by Carol Boltz...
I feel compelled respond on the list to this
message that was posted to the list due to the inaccurate comments and
aspersions cast in the comments below by Carol Boltz. Normally this should be
dealt with off list but in light of the fact that the complaint was
published for all I will respond so that all may see what is said.
1. Carol, your original e-mail sure looked
like a clear demand to be removed from the list by someone else other than
yourself. Why else would you even send a message like this to the list? I cannot
think of any other reason...
2. The list functions as a virtual community
and as such there are a very few rules of etiquette to be followed so that the
community functions smoothly. These are in no way excessive, in fact rather
minimal. The iris list is composed of approx 400 souls at his point and for the
most part functions as a very friendly and receptive group. Many of the members
know each other personally outside of the list and likewise many only know
the others from their virtual prescence here. Regardless, ideas, concepts,
current iris events and all sorts of information is shared and discussed
openly here. As far as I know there is no such "attitude of superiority"
projected here and I have been a member of the list since its inception as the
iris-list and now as iris-talk. Imparting of information on irises or
e-mail list etiquette is not to be construed as condescending or anything
else but informative and functional. Those that can absorb the information
and experiences are intellectually and socially richer, those that cannot are

Subject: Re: [iris-talk]
you for your detailed description on the methods to be remove from iris talk.
I would like to add I did not intentionally use "CAPS" to gain attention
nor did I entertain or assume that someone would remove me from the
list. Perhaps, the attitude of superiority is why Sterling Innerst is no
longer a list member.
To the rest of the list members: Thank you, in utter silence, I have
enjoyed the iris information received.
