Congratulations to those of you who just chased another person off of the
extropians list. Perhaps, if you're lucky, we'll wind up with only a few
dozen with exact same ideas on everything. That would be wonderful,
Frankly, I'm tired of seeing this happen. True, it isn't often as explicit
as this case, but I have been privy to seeing plenty of unsubscriptions
after unnecessary verbal attacks. And why is it...just because someone has
a few disagreements with one aspect of your worldview?
Personally, I have an opinion on virtually every thread on this list, but I
try not to share those opinions unless I feel they add something to the
discussion as a whole --usually they do not. Unfortunately, I don't have a
lot of workable ideas on changing the format of this list, or solutions to
out and out rudeness. I will mention, like many before me however, that I
find such behavior juvenile, unwarranted and disgusting, and most of all,
unnecessary. This isn't the kind of behavior that will win us credibility
on a public scale. Please keep that in mind before you start posting
