    I have noticed over the past few months, that a certain amount of personal 
    "slagging" has been going on. I am not the moderator, nor the owner, nor the 
    founder of any of these sites so I am not trying to act as the site sheriff, 
    however, as a participant of many years, I'd like to remind all that we 
    should treat each other with respect and avoid personal attacks and "catty" 
    comments. There are ways to disagree -- even vehemently -- with another list 
    member without resorting to jaded inferences, pendantic reprovals and open 
    hostility. If you think someone is full of ***t, fine, but try to articulate 
    your sentiments with academic and polite rebuttals.
    Frank Reed seems to have been the focus of a few "off" comments. I don't 
    believe for a minute that he is trying to subvert the old list and replace it 
    with a new one under his control. Frank perceived that there is a serious 
    problem with the old list and attempted to do something about it. Personally 
    -- and this is only because I am not as computer savvy as most folks -- I did 
    not see any major problems with the old site, other than periods of radio 
    silence and the occasional delayed/lost messages, however that does not mean 
    that there is not a problem. I lament the passing of the old list because it 
    is the one I first signed onto and through it, I have met some fascinating 
    folks. But Dan Hogan is moving on, no one seems to want to step in and take 
    over the old list and Frank has offered us an alternative. At the end of the 
    day, whoever doesn't want to go along with Frank, is free to go elsewhere or 
    take over NAV-L.
    I agree with a few others that the club will remain the same; we are only 
    meeting at a different place. Is it really that big a deal?  I will continue 
    to patronize both sites until this is sorted out or until the old list sails 
    off into the sunset. Either way, I still get the benefit of some informative 
    and interesting discussion.
    So please gents, let's try to be civil to one another and keep this list - 
    wherever it may be - friendly and collegial.
