You know... I really miss Bruce, not for this reason you give which is probably right on the mark, but because he'd have a point of view that although not the same as mine, would be intelligently presented and well argued. Don's posts are often in this same spirit, even it the themes are different, and also Stan has this same style. I don't, on the other hand, although I sometimes wish I did. > rules of this list.

That would be a better, less intrusive > way of advertizing Esp on this list. I believe Don often sends links and not entire articles. Although sometimes the promo ads are well supported with lengthy explanations, why give the link then right? But I don't think this is too intrusive, after all, I loved the link to the new book service, it is something I wish Interlingua supporters would emulate. We're looking for ways to handle the requests of books. BTW did you guys know that the Academia pro Interlingua has sent a total of over 120+ volumes of Dictionaries, and grammars to individuals in the U.S. all with most inadequate means of getting orders and shipping the materials... man what could be accomplished if we had someone as pushy as Bob on our ranks, eh Bob? > Bobs posts _in_ Occ tend to be different because they are used in debates on Although Bobs posts are more often than not self agrandizing and inflated claims rather than anything worthy of archival for auxlang discussion history to revisit as references. On the other hand, links Don and you, James, have provided are often noted and reserved, bookmarked and re-visited from time to time by me. So are Stans letters, articles and other messages sent which are really insightful into early IALA efforts or Interlingua infancy, I love to read Dr. Gode's letters. Even if I feel like I'm eavesdropping...:-) I'd like more material like that on auxlang. More links, more variety and above all more fresh ideas, and this is one area where Bob does deserve credit even if his methods at times are very irritating to me. Since, Jay B.
