  For those of you new to the group - It is not unusual for discussions to
last several weeks, or even as long as a month if the people are
interested.  Nothing forces anyone to read all of the posts in a given
thread if they get bored before the rest of the group.  Additionally,
nothing stops anyone from starting a new thread (most of us are capable of
following several).

  Given the busy lives of most of us, it is often difficult for everyone to
keep up with the group every single day.  This is especially true after an
extended holiday (I had over 73 messages waiting for me when I returned
from break!).  Personally, I have found some of the contributions to the
thread in the last few days to be very pertinent.
