Subject: [Puptcrit] How to vent the spleen through puppetry

I received the following wonderful suggestion from Gregory MacNaughton:

These Puptcrit spats make me think of the Taiwanese puppeteers I have had
fortune to meet and with whom I have studied. Taiwan of course is a rather 
condensed geographic location which at one time had hundreds of puppet
companies competing against one another. Puppeteers would frequently have
spats and arguments but they would not vent their spleen in conversation but
in a puppet show. I wonder if we could challenge everyone on the list that
if they have something provocative (or rude or insulting) that they want to
say to someone on the list, they should create a short piece, film it and
post it to us all watch. That way we can have our petty disagreemnts but
they would always be related to puppetry. Instead of trading obnoxious
baiting and petty 
insults, let's encourage eachother to deveolp some chops. There is no way we

can stop being petty but at least we could be creative about it. - Gregory
