Subject: Re: Minimal Civility
Am I the only one distressed at the kind of language used in recent postings on
Branagh's Iago? I'll probably be attacked as a prig, but I don't think
educated scholars should use vulgar obscenities in public, professional
discourse. Not everyone has been desensitized to the shock effect of public
obscenity (despite the pervasive assaults of pop culture).
