Re: What's your take on this, co-moderator?
- 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.

- Hello Jim and all,

> permanently on LinguistListI 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
not in connection with the CS Forum)
