Dear Colleagues, I guess there might be a separate thread for those who have worked very hard for years and have gotten mostly very harsh punishment, but nothing resembling the Bill of Rights or even a chance to respond to allegations about their integrity, loyalty or sanity. If we don't have such a discussion soon, my guess is that you will lose all your US contributers. Is that what you want? I request a collegial response from the list moderators. I find it odd that there seems to be no such flame war about people who post at least as "off list" items as the attacks on S.H. as though we in the peace movement, not the warlords of the U.S. U.K, and their fluckies had financed and armed him. Could at least have a single standard about whom and what to flame off this list? The stiff upper lip business does not work real well here and perhaps even among British people, vide Dr. Kelly's suicide (if that's what it was). Not trying to keep a flame war going, just trying to stay in the fight against an attack on the Iraqi kids that may prove more disasterous than even the sanctions. tom p.s. I personally am offended by the tactic of attacking position or person A on the CASI listserv , then asking people NOT to respond to the listserv. That, I feel is at the least unproductive and at most a shabby device. >===== Original Message From Salwa de Vree <firstname.lastname@example.org> ===== >Dear CASI list, > >I have to agree with Gabriel. While we are all suffering from bleeding hearts and wounded souls these days, I found the prayer email not at all inspirational and frankly, quite irritating. Like Gabriel said, these emails can be directed at eachother personally, and do not need to be sent to the whole list. The relevance of this list is Iraq-related topics, not our own feelings of despair. And now that the postings are not strictly sanctions-related but far more broad, at least for the time being, until the moderators decide which course to follow, there is much room for postings of all kinds. But they must at least contain an element of information. For those of us who need inspiration, myself included, there are other, more suitable venues such as prayer houses, friends, family and Mother Nature to turn to. > >I sincerely hope this email does not perpetuate the irrelevant discussion we are having via CASI postings, so please send any comments you have to me personally. > >Best wishes, >Salwa de Vree. > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > > >* >-- >__________________________________________________________ >Sign-up for your own FREE Personalized E-mail at Mail.com >http://www.mail.com/?sr=signup > >CareerBuilder.com has over 400,000 jobs.
