Dear David Folmer,
While I generally agree with the sentiments in the forwarded message,
I think this is an inappropriate way to use the listserv, which is
after all an international one. If every member felt free to forward
every earnest political message, appeal for charitable funding, and
so forth that they happened to believe in, we could soon be
overwhelmed with spam, and with no ability to filter it. Other forms
of social media are already designed for people to pass on such
message to their friends and acquaintances. Use them to share with
an appropriate circle or network.
We've never met. Please don't continue this practice which is just
junk for most international members, and annoying, superfluous, or
irrelevant to many US members.
