   Steve, I agree with you 100% here.   We are a community, and whenever I
meet community people in person, I don't limit myself to just speaking about
iris.   In a forum like iris-talk, I believe the far majority of us do try
our best to be respectful of all others and of following the purpose of
iris-talk.  But sometimes there can be extenuating circumstances, which I
think most of us understand.    When the need is evident, I haven't minded
hearing comments from our community of friends.   I would hate to see this
forum become an over-policed state.    Gentle encouragement from our
administrator to be kept on track can be helpful, but it is better when we
run as a democracy and show caring among ourselves.
