seshat, don't you think you could call a moratorium, or cease-fire, or
cooling-off period? i haven't had time to do anything else for two days
except eat, sleep, and follow this controvery. by "follow", of course i
mean not just reading what's on the list, and occasionally writing
something - but what is more time-consuming, searching in my books and
files to answer questions that have been raised, or to check erroneous
and/or misleading assertions. of course, by the time i find the facts i
need, someone else has usually provided them on the list. let's all take a
break! bill
