Hi Garrett,

> Ahh, the "Good Ol' Boy" system

No, it's the "family" system.

Some of us began these discussions over 15 years ago on the early 
HyperCard lists.  We have discussed many on- and off-topic issues over 
the years, publicly and privately.  We explore off topic issues more 
broadly than many stick-to-the-topic lists allow--to listmom Heather's 
distraction sometimes, bless her--and know more about our fellow 
members because of it.

We know each other well enough to cut each other some slack and 
continue to respect one another once tempers have cooled down.  We are 
passionate about RunRev and may tend to pull fewer punches in our 
conversation, especially when we have a long history of conversation 
with the other party.

Since you are working with Revolution, you are a member of the family.

But as the long-lost cousin we've only just met, don't you feel it's 
unwise to intervene in a dispute between Cousin Judy and Cousin Dan in 
the manner you did without knowing them both a little better?

Who are a little wise, the best fooles bee."

from "The Triple Foole" by John Donne (1572-1631)
