Seconding what Daniel says; B, I find your posts fascinating, and
usually well-reasoned even if I don't agree with them. You are not
the first person to come into this list and make a whole lot of postings,
full of new observations and theories; even when the theories are far
more controversial than yours have been, I think it's a good thing,
because it tends to bring new energy to the list, which otherwise
tends to languish somewhat between Lupine publications.
