Agreed. I moderate a forum with over 7K members and strict TOU. People
know they can debate and even be negtative. When they get personal their
mail will be zapped and a personal message sent.  My reading here has
become pretty much limited to a few threads. I find this most useful and
even make purchases when there is a good pointer such as the recent one
on the origin of language.

Best, S

William Godshalk writes, "Hardy has asked us-again and again and
again-to keep our personal quarrels and insults offlist. Do Larry
Weiss's insults and Bill Arnold's equally insulting responses have much
or anything to do with Shakespeare?"

In the eye of the beholder, Monsieur!

Hardy posted responses of several members who associated David Basch and
myself as they saw fit.  I did not consider it insulting. I took it all
in good taste, as tongue-in-cheek reparte!

Perhaps William Godshalk wishes to become my apologist?  If Hardy posted
those responses, the latter in French, then I felt obligated to respond:
in French.  French is an appropriate language for response, given its
international flavor, its notable humorists aka humanists!
