      Hi, Eph,

      Short answer ('Am I too inclined to censor?'): Yes.
      To expatiate a bit: What I've noticed lately on the list (aside from the
      very interesting 'family/culture' thread) is rather a sort of verbal
      constipation than logorrhea. After all, without logorrhea, where are
      code-switching studies? Likewise, the point of newbie introductions is to
      pique our (apparently flagging) interest and to get us to start
      communicating (at least with the newbie, if not with the whole list).

      As most of us probably know, all messages to this list are archived
      permanently on LinguistList (if you haven't given yet, donate to their fund
      drive, as I did rather tardily and minimally yesterday [better minimally
      than not at all]). This means, in answering any message, you can delete the
      nonrelevant parts of it, and anyone who wants to see more can just navigate
      their favorite browser to LinguistList to see any messages they may have
      missed. This would eliminate the *unnecessary* logorrhea on this and other
      lists. As opposed to what I consider *necessary* logorrhea.

        I am not sure if what you say is correct, that is, I do not think
        messages to this list are archived there. (I am responding to this
        piece of information, because Jim linked it with the LinguistList's
        call to support them financially. It can be done, but if I am
        correct,
        not in connection with the CS Forum)

        Best,
        Marian
