Ron and all:

Your assessment is correct.  Brian, Todd and I view this as a forum in 
which topics of discussion are considered a QSO.  People are free to 
post as many messages that are on topic as they wish.  If things wander 
substantially off topic or become personal, we will stop it.  Until then 
we are all adults and all behave in that fashion.  Thanks to all of you 
for making this list interesting  and fun.
