respond if you feel you have something to offer the newcomer. I know from my
emails that there are many out there who do not feel comfortable posting.
Please open your hearts to them.
Have a wonderful day.
I am glad that you received positive encouragement from many - both on the
list and privately. I think it is the duty of everyone to encourage
everyone to express their ideas, opinions and questions because none of us
have all the answers or have first hand information on most things.
Internet maillists is an entirely new medium of communication and it takes
quite a while before many dare to post, that is from where hesitancy comes
from. Since postings are read by everyone, one is likely to see responses
which question one's *beliefs* or *opinions* and such questioning makes
many uncomfortable. In addition, many may not want to post for fear of
other repercussions outside of the list, especially due to the interlocking
membership on other entities.
Also the uncensored nature of the lists makes fair game anything anyone
posts on any subject.

I don't know of any rules about topics. So we do get variety of postings on
various subjects that subscribers are interested in. Feel free to post
anything you like.
