Subject: 14.2370 Why List Moderation Is Good
Comment:        RE: SHK 14.2370 Why List Moderation Is Good

Al Magary raises the topic of the moderator, I raise my glass in three
cheers for our Moderator and the Board.

Those of us unlettered autodidacts of the severe super-ego type will
naturally peruse this posting with trepidation; yet our boldfaced love
for the Bard urges and constrains us to contribute; even if sometimes
only the impassioned drive-by-type of posting that could be perceived as
chaotic immoderation.

Yet I hear Professor Cook in my mind's ear soothing and quoting Sonnet
35:

  NO more be grieved at that which thou hast done;
  Roses have thorns, and silver fountains mud,
  ....
  ....
  All men make faults, and even I in this,
  Authorizing thy trespass with compare,
  Myself corrupting salving thy amiss,
  Excusing thy sins more than they sins are:
  For to thy sensual fault I bring sense--
  Thy adverse party is thy advocate--
  ....
