It was foolish of me to attempt to list the proof theorists who
subscribe to FOM off the top of my head.  I unintentionally omitted
two of the most prominent ones, Charles Parsons and Peter Aczel, and
perhaps others.  I apologize to anyone who was left out.

In any case, the purpose of my postings was to advance a discussion of
foundational issues and programs in proof theory.  Could some of you
proof-theorists please jump in?  You need to get involved in this
discussion!  I need your help!  I'm unqualified, because I'm not even
a real honest-to-God proof-theorist.
