I agree with what you've written about the tone of e-mail. I'm seeing a 
bunch of stuff going on with several lists right now. I don't know if the 
moon is in a weird place, if it's the holidays or what, but there certainly 
seem to be a bunch of misunderstandings and less-than-tactful comments 
being made.

With another list that was part of a community that faded away a few months 
ago I asked everyone to please count to 10, 100, or wait until the next day 
to think about what you're sending. I think it's too easy to type stuff 
onto the screen and hit the SEND button, where in real life so much of this 
would never be said.

'Nuf said. I'm off to pick up my son from school, wrap presents, and make 
fudge. I'd invite ya'll over for fresh fudge, cookies, music, your favorite 
beverage, and a fire in the fireplace if ya'll were around my neighborhood.

Take care, everyone.
