Subject: Recent Discussions

Dear all,

This site has seen a lot of activity recently, which is great.  If some of =
you are wondering why many of the regular participants (including myself) =
are not participating in the recent discussions, it's because we are =
frantically trying to prepare for the upcoming meeting.  I (I won't speak =
for others this time) simply do not have time to read all these messages =
and am deleting most of them without reading more than a couple of lines.  =
This is unfortunate, because some of them (Mike Keesey's first post today =
comes to mind) raise important points that deserve further discussion.  =
Some of these discussions will likely occur during the meeting.  For those =
of you who are unable to attend the meeting, I suspect that your posts are =
more likely to be read by people who are attending if the discussion =
occurs after the meeting.  I hate to discourage discussion.  I just want =
to point out that many of us will not have time to participate until after =
the meeting and are unlikely to wade through the backlog that has built up =
by that time.
