Right on Terry!

When I read some of the nonsense, I'm inclined to become even more 
abrasive!  Nay, positively revolutionary!!

Cheers,
John Drakakis

 >No wonder the young turn to the appalling Bob Geldof.

I'm baffled.  Turn to him because he's healthily abrasive, or because he 
isn't?  Appalling because it would be better for them to be reading 
aggressive emails about Shakespeare than thinking about world hunger?

Yours in hand-wringing bewilderment,
Julia

Oh no! Is Professor Hawkes to vent his spleen on Saint Bob now?  And how 
about the even more dreadful Bono?  Doesn't he deserve a mention?

Gentlemen: I happen to be one of the ladies who regards a bit of sniping 
as de rigeur in academia.  I'm sorry Ms Amit has raised this issue, 
especially as I thought she had parted company with us some time back. 
It seems a bit rich to quit us in disgust and then return to bleat about 
our collective behaviour.  Whilst I think that a brief protest at 
specific misdemeanours is sometimes appropriate (some of the 
mud-slinging occasionally gets a bit personal and, let's face it, 
tedious), I have a much stronger objection to those listmembers who 
repeatedly bang on at astonishing length about their own personal 
obsessions (Shakespeare the covert Jew, for example).  Their tone is 
civil, but their assumption that they have the right to bore us all is 
another kind of rudeness.

Let's please give Hardy the respect he deserves for the immense wisdom 
and forebearance with which he moderates the list and exercise our right 
to ignore or argue with any contributions that do not suit our personal 
tastes.
