Dennis: Hopefully, there aren't any other issues that are "equally passionate." I subscribe to this listserv for information, and go elsewhere for passion! I have never threatened to resign from this list. There is no need to. My delete button works just fine and, as you know, the filtering rules in Outlook 98 are excellent! Several individuals have sent me thank you notes for the Outlook 98 and Windows 98 post. I have no regrets. I have never had any problem straying from the sometimes narrow confines of structural subject matter, and I am tolerant when others do so. (Is it time to start another Slick Willie thread yet?) However, I do get frustrated when a single subject dominates the listserv for a week or more, with only a handful of active participants, offering mostly redundant and lengthy arguments, with copies of other's previous arguments, until the subjects are beaten to death. That's why, in my opinion, Frank Lew and Fred Turner make so much sense. Now then, go out and have a wonderful day! Stan R. Caldwell, P.E.

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 more. 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 discussion.

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! Stan R. Caldwell, P.E. Ice Hockey Fan Dallas, Texas
