Discussion. Freedom of speech. Stop trying to tell us what issues we can
and cant raise. You wont shut me up.
It goes without saying that I wont tell you to shut up.>>>
Thanks, Scott, for reminding me about freedom of speech. That's exactly why
I chose to support Ray's viewpoint.
We probably all have serious and legitimate concerns about the environment,
but I also believe this forum is the place for a 'generalist' viewpoint
only - a bit of this and a bit of that. When it comes to the rarefied air
of highly specific topics, I think those interested should move into a
virtual private room to discuss the pros and cons. Apart from anything
else, it keeps the number of emails down in the general forum. And then
everyone enjoys freedom.
And no one will have a beef (oops).
