Spike, the lead list moderator, is watching the posts; albeit I appreciate 
your post and concerns.

To prevent any negative subject lines about the WTA, ExI has asked that all 
thread subject lines not use any negative language re WTA. Spike is 
monitoring this.

The only post that I read that was intentionally written to aggravate ExI 
and WTA was made by Marino Buble on WTA's list.  ExI's chair Max More 
responded to this calmly and cogently.

Regarding posts on ExI's List: Jose's post was inflammatory.  He did state 
that he would not post again for a couple of months.

Harve's and Eli's posts have not been inflammatory, they have been 
level-headed expressions of their thoughts and feelings.

Regarding all other postings, Spike is very careful in watching for ad 
hominem attacks and posts that are written to cause conflicts.

Thank you for your concerns, and I will share with you that I hope people 
can air their thoughts and feelings with civility and work toward solving 

Best wishes,
