it will help to explain why no one saw the attachment that Karel says
above that he enclosed.
The software that runs XTalk is set up to strip attachments from
messages, so your attachment didn't come through.
More importantly, and as our protocols state, anything that a list
member wishes to post that is as long as your attachment is should
**not** be posted directly to the List. One must first send it to the
moderators who will then, after deciding whether or not the article is
appropriate for the List, upload it to our "articles for review"
section. (This procedure has spared us spared being subjected to crank
science articles and "the NT was all written by Piso or Josephus or
space aliens" posts).
So I ask you to send what you have to me OFF LIST and then it will be
uploaded to the appropriate section in our files and announced as
available for viewing.
Thanks in advance for your co-operation with this.
