Conversations do meander."

Lou, your point is well taken; I didn't mean to imply that only 'Very Smart
People' (as you refer to them) should be allowed to write to the list.
Everyone should have access--we can all learn from ALL of our peers.

My point was this: the exodus from this list involves a lot of those same
'Very Smart People' (people I would like to continue to learn from) who are
simply tired of sorting through 3 or 4 posts from the same people EVERY day.
You know as well as I do that some people are posting just to read their own
posts, as it were.

A little moderation on their part would help a lot.
