Gilson Bruce I take it you are here making a possible exit if I convince enough people who would want to make the change to join the list eh? :-))) Lesssee, There's at least four I can think off hand that I might invite... Hmmm. Perhaps others as well... But anyway... before you start shanking in your sneakers... please keep the tone as positive as you can. To START CAPITALIZING is kinda rude... Oh yeah, I remember now you don't have problems with getting rude to others if it suits your purposes, isn't that right? I find it quite hypocritical to say anyone is welcome to join and when they express their view you threaten to leave if it doesn't go your way. It's been said it before, in another list, it is your ball, let's play... Don't retreat cowardly, taking the ball away, and please don't start changing the rules. You make obvious boasts that the group says this and that and then if it doesn't go your way you will drop the whole thing. Come on, man! I know you to be a better conlanger than that Bruce, I respect your opinion in many things, we obviously don't agree on quite a few others but please don't create a spirit of hostility. What goes around tends to come around. Disgustedly, Jay B.
