Dear subscribers,

Once again the technology leaps ahead of reasonable controls: it is a good 
thing that the Internet permits rapid exchanges of ideas, but ,,,

It is not unusual when B replies to a message posted by A to send copies of 
the reply both to FOM and to A. Then, often, A shoots off a stunning 
rejoinder to B, and sends it to FOM as well. Meanwhile, I have to consider 
whether B's message is suitable for posting on FOM. If not, I can't post 
A's rejoinder to it either.

Suggestion: Please wait until you see a message actually posted on FOM 
before you send FOM a reply to it.

Thank you,
