I echo Milla Riggio's sentiments precisely (on counting to ten).  She
articulates what I have often thought recently.  My diminished
participation in the list is due to the overwhelming number of messages.

Comment:        SHK 11.0793 Re: Counting to Ten

Milla Riggio made a very balanced reaction to what Hardy has produced
for us recently. But I have to say that compared to one or two other net
groups that I belong to, this one is a model of academic rectitude. Too
often such groups degenerate into cosy chats about trivia between
faculty who seem intent in exchanging gossip rather than revealing
interesting insights or debating central issues. And when registering my
own exasperation at such activities, I can also reveal that the outrage,
huffiness and general harrumphing flames that follow any kind of
admonitory intrusion from beyond the 'magic circle' is nearly funny if
it were not so sad.

I have received a number of public and private notes to the effect that
a handful of people seem to be dominating the discussions on SHAKSPER
with contributions whose value is questionable. In the past, I have not
discouraged contributions from anyone, even if I may have considered
them a bit off-the-wall; however, when it gets to the point long-time,
loyal, members of this conference are considering unsubscribing, then I
am compelled to make yet another plea for self-regulation.

I have worked very hard over the years to make SHAKSPER what it is
today. I do not want it to become unregulated nor do I want to lose the
academic focus of the list. My hope is that members will heed my pleas
for self-moderation so that the Advisory Board and I will not need to
develop guidelines about postings.
