Oh! I think this criterion is FAR too restrictive.

Personally, I read msot postiongs, but save a very samll proportion.
That is no comment on the seriousness of the list - just of my
abaility to digest them!

I too read most postings and save a small proportion.

Without 'getting at' Piers Bursill-Hall( 03-Feb-98 17:21:01) on
"Sb: the health of this list", I think that some of our friends
could be sitting in ivory towers and tend to forget that others do
not easily have access to university and other libraries. Retired,
I'm taking the opportunity to broaden my sadly neglected 'general'
education and further knowledge I haven't taken time to before. My
little local library can often take months to get, sometimes useless,
information and this list has provided much to meditate on. That any
question asked doesn't fit into( what could end up as) a very small
box is truly defeating the investigations into history.

Come back Julio, carry on Antreas and thank you both for taking time
to answer/ comment on the odd query.
