Very well put. I couldn't agree more. John, I know you had the best of
intentions, but the logical end result of this approach would end up with a
highly fractured list. I vote let's keep things as they are.

Hi Barry,

this on-topic / off-topic discussions keep creeping up every few months. The
pattern is often similar: It heats up, injury and insult fly, in the end
things cool down and we are happy to keep the status quo. don't worry. just
ignore the annoyances.

i've missed much of this last argument in the last weeks. i guess if i was
following the list in real time i would have had a similar reaction to
yours. i reacted that way a few times in the past. in the meantime i've
learned that these are storms in a a glass of water and they go away by

I love ice hockey and enjoyed the ice rink panorama. unfortunately i do not
have the Nikon 10.5mm. this is no reason not to be interested in what its
users say about it, nor to ask them to move their discussion somewhere else.

If I have no time, I just press the delete key. I do not want these messages
and this community to go away. Even if they are not immediately useful to
me, they are the sign of a lively community. Even the occasional flame is
ok, we are all human after all.

the only alternate list that should be considered is ptwhiners, but even
those I would miss because this list would not be the same without them.

Long live the panotools yahoo group
