Recently there have been a very large number of postings on two
topics: (1) category theory, (2) Hersh's views. I and at least some
other FOM subscribers have found this flood somewhat overwhelming.
May I make a small suggestion? I suggest that, for the time being,
each of us limit ourselves to one posting per topic per day. Many FOM
subscribers will appreciate this.
Guidelines for FOM postings: All postings are to consist of
single-spaced ASCII text. Please proofread your postings carefully.
Please strive for high standards of clarity, scholarship, courtesy,
I am working up a list of topics for discussion on the FOM list. This
list will be posted separately.
Best regards to all,
