Am I the only one who welcomes a little diatribe once in a while? :) 

Heaven forbid that we should start "vetting" those who wish to participate in 
this list.  Who would do it?  Who would set the standards?  Could it possibly 
avoid narrowing the discussion to only that which "the powers that be" want 
to discuss, as in some of the technical journals?

I have lived in the US, South America and I am now living in Europe and I
tell everybody that each side of the Atlantic has its pros and cons. I do
agree with Bill and others but it is no case to discuss it here.
We can do it privately if you wish.
Regarding Mr. Pedro I don't a professional can write in such a way, but I
there should be a way to screen the people before accessing this list.
