Well, I seem to have deleted the message that i meant to reply to. I hate 
it when that happens...

Anyway, what I wanted to say is that I really believe we are all trying!
And if people get theirr feelings hurt someimes...I don't believe any of
us wishes this to happen. This is one place where I would hope we'd all
feel safe enough to post our opinions, and in order to make it safe *all*
of us (those who post often especially) need to try to write with care.

One thing I have discovered is that truly heartfelt statements sometimes
come across as being the most critical. 

Once I remember writing an impassioned plea for something (not on this 
list) and found myself perceived of as having written a one-sided attack. 
What a surprise!

If you feel attacked...best thing to do is to try to imagine the 
person who wrote it. That person may well be a real sweetie in person.

Anyway, please keep writing, all of you, we are doing a good job here.

Sandy
