the list will be down on Thursday, 9/14 and Friday, 9/15 to effect a
transfer of materials on the servers. please refrain from sending
messages during this time as they will probably get lost in cyberspace.
as to the recent "activity' on the list, i wish to reassure one and all
that I do read every post before sending it on to the list. they have all
passed modr8r inspection, even the Horowitz/Blankfort exchanges. i did not
view any of them as 'flames' or 'rants'. perhaps a tad heated, but
nothing outside the bounds of list etiquette. plus, Blankfort's last post
indicated that he was "concluding this exchange" with Horowitz. it looks
as though folks will have to suffer through one more Horowitz reply in
that exchange and then move on to the next panic attack. i found the
exchange to be engaging and enlightening and definitely 'on-topic'.
as compared with other email lists, sixties-l is extremely 'low traffic',
so the charges of 'infiltration' and/or 'disruption' i find to be more
than a bit overblown. also, keep in mind that all of this goes into the
archives, so my perspective when approving posts also includes their
historical significance. i do think that the Horowitz/Blankfort exchange
falls pretty solidly into this category.
on a related note, i am not "modr8r for life" and if anyone out there
wants to take on the job, or alternate weeks/months, i'm more than happy
to accomodate folks. it's pretty much a thankless job, and you can
obviously never satisfy everybody, but I enjoy it.
enjoy the couple of days off, folks!
(I will not post replies to this email to the list, but will respond
