Well, I clearly don't understand what you (as in "you, Barb", not as in "all of you") talk about -- either that or I'm not able to paraphrase it in a way that you recognize as yours. It was my impression, from many of your posts, that one of your motives for participating in this group was to preserve and pbutt on knowledge. It seems to me that telling people about things that worked in the past would be useful in that regard.
The point I was trying to make was one I thought you would surely agree with, again based on many of your previous posts. I'll try once more: It is often said that people who don't remember the mistakes of the past are condemned to repeat them. My point was that people who don't remember the successes of the past are also at a disadvantage compared to those who do.
Now that I put it that way, though, it doesn't seem like a very interesting point to make.
(You and I seem to have got crosswise somehow, after what I thought were a number of interesting and not-useless exchanges in the past. I don't understand this, and previous experience suggests that attempts to explain myself and smooth things over have no positive effect, but -- oh well, one more try and then maybe I'll have sense enough to either drop it or take it to e-mail.)
