Enough is Enough

I am deeply distressed by the acrimonious bickerings.

I second Bill Cain's post.

I was about to write expressing the same opinions he
did. But he beat me to it.

I earnestly appeal to Dennis Wish and  Bill Polhemus
to bury their hatchets, and light up their peace

This list is a valuable resource for all of us.
No one should leave. We should all try to expand it's

Let bygones be bygones.
Let's agree to differ in opinion occasionally.
Let's not ridicule others opinons.

We are engineers, not politicians.
Each of us is a  unique person.
Body chemistry and  mental attitudes vary.
We have no choice but to tolerate each other.

Leaving the list in a huff is no solution, merely
because one or two list members express themselves
strongly against you.

is to avoid the temptation to have the last word on
the subject.

I hope none of you will leave the list and we will
soon be back to normal.

With greetings and best wishes to all from far away
G Vishwanath
