Subject: Re: reviewing posts...

  I dont mind doing the reviewing again - this time I am back in the US 
with my regular daily online rituals so I will be quicker in fwding 
messages at least until the december break and when I travel to conferences 
in between.

The multiply identity posters you speak of have been a problem several 
times in the list history. Nothing new.\

Certainly if we want to move our discussions to a blog site - I am willing 
to explore that option - but I dont know that that would necessarily be 
that much more secure - we do not screen participants/members who join in 
any way.
