Me, too!! Since I was in an auto accident on the way back from Olcott, I can
say that with even more fervor.
Someone suggested I write a report on the Annual Meeting. Since I was only
there for Radha's Sunday morning lecture, it might be quite short. No time this
year to play at Olcott.

I knew this about this stuff months ago, but was pledged to secrecy. You see,
folks, I've been in a kind of bind here. I had friends at the LCC who were also
involved with Olcott, so I often road the fence. Not a comfortable place to be.
But now I can open my mouth a little wider. For those of you who have wished
the LCC extinct, you are close to getting your wish here in Chicago.

Is yours called alt.heretic? How would I access it? I know I was briefly on the
list that is managed by Eldon, till I came home to theos-l. No one was talking
on Eldon's list.
IMO, there are two extremes in managing a list. There's the totally free list,
where anyone can post anything. Problem is, one or more posters can take over a
list and make nasty netiquette errors that irk everyone. Needs someone to slap
their knuckles with a cyber-ruler once in a while or threaten "unsubscribe" if
things really get out of hand.
OTH, the censored list will have only those *select* and *proper* posters being
admitted to the list. (snore)
