It seems to me that quite a number of requests and notes come to corpora from
those who have just heard about the list, hoping to find out what they do not
know, whether simple or complex, or making an announcement potentially useful to
list members. Let it continue.
There are requests about topics that would interest a significant number of list
members. There are others with very limited appeal, but nevertheless important
to a few. Consequently, why not let each list member decide case by case
whether to post a reply to the list or the sender only, and let the sender
decide to post a summary if there appears to be sufficient interest?
This list is mercifully spared the mindless sparing of others, a real waste of
- Isaac Newton apparently wrote of his work: "I seem to have been only like a
boy playing on the seashore, diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother
pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, while the great ocean of truth lay all
undiscovered before me."
