Stan, if there are equally passionate issues to raise on other structural
subjects, then present them. Any member that resigns from this list because
they are inundated with threads on conventional framing are rather narrow
minded to suggest that any on-going thread should be restricted because it
may not agree with the silent majority viewpoint. The last thing we want to
do is censure this list or it just becomes a good-old-boys club and nothing
If you don't like some of the posts delete them, filter anything with my
name to the recycle bin or simply download a digest version of the list and
pick what you want to read.
If you don't like the subject - ignore it rather than knocking those of us
interested in the subject. The majority of those on this list are probably
involved daily with larger type projects. Nobody is stopping them or you
from taking time to discuss those issues.
Now go back to your post earlier today regarding Outlook 98 and Windows 98 -
where is the link to structural engineering in that? Did any of us suggest
you not post that to the list because others use Unix or Mac's and are not
interested in Windows?
Let's be a little more tolerant to those who do benefit from this

Are single family dwellings really the critical subject that we want to

I couldn't have stated it any better.  I firmly believe that there is a
silent majority out there that design buildings in concrete and steel,
... buildings that greatly exceed 5,000 s.f.  Where are they?  After the
past few days, they are probably unsubscribing in droves!
