My sincerest apologies to all.

Like the Duke in Measure for Measure, I have been far too lax in
enforcing standards.

I plan to take at least the next week to consider the muddle I have
found myself in.

This is a despicably objectionable message which should never have been
either posted or written.

Surely the gross personal abuse in this post must lie outside what is
reasonable for this list? I don't consider the individual points worthy
of rebuttal but if the prospect of a production doesn't appeal to
Charles then surely the best thing for his mental health and ours is
that he should be kind to himself by staying away and be kind to us by
not venting his spleen about it. This production doesn't even open until
January!

This is a posting but also a request. Hardy, you obviously would not
post a message from Charles Weinstein saying such things about another
member of SHAKSPER. Please refuse to post anything by him as offensive
as this about anyone. I do not think such crude expressions of loathing
have any place in our discussions and I find them deeply repugnant.

Now that we all know, from previous postings, everything we need to know
about what Mr. Weinstein thinks of Simon Russell Beale, not to mention
about his theatrical tastes, perhaps he would be willing to place his
reviews on a website and post the link to SHAKSPER, rather than post his
reviews on the list.  I'd much prefer to be spared his homophobic
ramblings, and his attitudes towards different body types.  If I ever
want to read negative reviews of actors based on their physical
attributes, I can always read John Simon.

Respectfully,
Cary

Simon Russell Beale is overweight?  You don't say.

I had thought that recent posts from Hardy and others might have stemmed
this kind of mindless abusiveness.  Please.  NO MORE.
