Since Ed is tied up with a work activity today, I am responding as
moderator of this list.
Attacks, degrading remarks and demeaning posts have nothing to do
with this list and will not be tolerated. This list is built on the
sharing of information, camaraderie and the joy of spending leisure
time in the outdoors. Constructive criticism is encouraged, lashing
otu at others is not.
While I appreciate that several of you are defending your peers,
responding to posts like these just satisfies the need of the
original poster to be seen and heard. The best defense is to ignore
If posts of these type continue to come from any specific member of
this group, then Ed and I will discuss how this needs to be dealt
with. In the meantime, please remember that there are people behind
email addresses who deserve respect even when you don't agree with
