Moderator plea and Happy Pesach #latvia


Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

The job of moderating demands a lot of editing which may come as a surprise
to some of you.
I am not a school teacher but it really distresses me to post messages that
have sentences that do not start with a capital letter, have names of town
and countries in lower case and occasionally there is very little
punctuation. Editing is not just a case of editing the message as you read
it and sometimes due to the constraints of time I have to let the message
pass with a lot of inaccuracies.
I have really delighted at the new vibrancy that I detect in the newgroup
so please keep your messages coming. We all benefit >from the exchange.
Problems are usually shared by many others and so the answers are of
general benefit.
It is often difficult to decide whether you should reply to a message or
wait for one of the usual suspects such as Constance,Martha or myself to
reply. I would like to assure you that it does not matter how many replies
are posted and the same answer to a query will reinforce the reply. Once
the thread is exhausted it will be closed.

I take this opportunity to wish all of you a very happy Pesach.

I hope that you will try to come to London to the Conference in July as it
will be so nice to meet you.
