I can't recall anyone stopping anyone from discussing these makers recent
work. Nor the work of other filmmakers now working in digital.

Video is not under any threat here, and I think you know that as much as
anyone who frequents this forum.

I was simply quoting the original intent of the forum. If I have video
questions I choose to take those questions elsewhere, or I contact folks
off-list. If this is somehow infringing on one personal liberities well
they can do as many have already, post about video despite the original
intents of this listserv. The forum is as stated: "unmoderated". So do as
you please.
