True, but they are not *participating* if they only post when an
opportunity to criticise bionet politics arises.  I accept that many
people just skim through bionet.plants and don't want (or consider it
unnecessary) to post.  But, I consider the real value of this medium to
be the opportunity it gives us to *participate* in open discussions.

: To risk Tony's ire about non-relevant things on bionet.plants -

Nah, bionet.plants is an open forum and your peers will let you know
when it's time to move over to :-)

: Re: the "reply" command.  f or F is just as easy to use, the "follow up"
: command, as is r or R and its much more interesting to the rest of us. ;-)

Ok ... Follow-up: to about how to use news/mail.


ps. whatever happened to your bionet.microscopy proposal ??
