  1. OT: Civil Discourse

    Hello Friends,

    I am grateful to see the semblance of civility championed by Jim
    Byrne. However, I am also swearing off -- not at -- OT posts of any
    kind. And to be too much of a stickler, this Civil Discourse post
    which encourages moderation is strictly an OT. I just watched
    somebody jump in less than 90 minutes later with a one-line "oh yeah?
    Says you!" -- and that's just the kind of stuff I'm trying to filter
    without using the delete key.

    I had something to say about this hijack of the 3000-L's purpose up
    on the 3000 NewsWire blog yesterday. If you're interested, go read it.



    Perhaps it will make a difference, perhaps not. Yes, we can hope.

    Best wishes for 3000-related discourse here, in a time when your
    community needs to share instead of shear,
    --

    Could you be a little less obvious in your attempts to drive traffic to
    your site?

    I kid you not.

    Comments are my own, not my employer's... etc.

    Puleeeze.

    Ron's contributions to HP3000-L are second to none.

    And the inclusion of his references is also a service which I, and
    many others on this list - I'm sure - welcome.

    Are you serious! with all the garbage on 3000-L this week (including
    your own contributions) you chastise someone for pointing to about the
    only source of 3000 News left on the planet?

  5. RE : [HP3000-L] OT: Civil Discourse

    I also posted the following on Ron's blog on The Newswire.

    Ron, I could not agree more. Though I've more or less left the 3000 arena,
    but for the occasional service, I used to read HP3000-L with taste, even
    envy. But too much is too much. I'm done with my HP3000-L daily reading.

    I hope reason prevails in the future.

    BTW, aren't there more appropriate blogs for such rants ?

    Christian
