Hi Dan and John,
As I feared earlier, a thread on Phys-L has turned personal. I don't mind
stepping in to remind people the purpose of the list. While I do think a
lively debate of a political issue should be allowed from time-to-time, I'm
not happy to see attacks become personal. I do worry that too much of this
will cause some to unsubscribe.
Something I can offer is a side mail list where these things can be
discussed ad nauseum. Any thoughts regarding this?

Hay Mark, my family and I are ok. I hope the same for you and yours._______________________________________________
And John and the Denkers.
If we are not going to boot people, then we ignore it I guess.
While plenty of stupid and outlandish stuff has been said this time,
none of it appeared to me to be directly racist or myogynist, before I
at pretty high speed. The direct stuff is what sets me off. And folk
might get there yet.
I would point out that booting 1-2 folk only would “fix’ this, but
maybe I need racist and misogynist acquaintances for immunological
Take care, Dan M

It appears that Phys-L is descending again into a bit of a discussion
regarding politics that are outside of physics education or even physics
itself. I've not formalized my thoughts on if and how much to allow on
Phys-L. Do you have any thoughts, concerns, or opinion on this topic?
