[Baypiggies] Fwd: Stackless anyone?

My two cents, I do not think freedom of speech is equal to being rude.  Too
often a call for civility is attacked as censorship.
I believe very strongly in this forum being used to get across ideas quickly
and with as much brevity as possible, but "Dude, it sucks" does nothing for
any of us trying to find information.  I think having standards for
communication, especially in our current emerging text message culture,
helps us to convey information properly and isn't that one of the main
reasons for this group?

I am in no way attacking the original posted email (so no need to fire back
that I misquoted anyone, as I am not directly quoting anyone), but rather
pointing out that if a post/reply conveys no real information that we can
use, then it is not worth sending.

of other people's cultures. (pause) And the Dutch.

If a user group mailing list isn't the place for frank discussion, then I'm
a bit concerned.
Should we reopen the name of the group? baypiggies? (anyone remember the
very long and drawn out threads on that)?

My 2cents.
