  • Summary vs. discussion

    Dear subscribers,

    It is certainly not the policy of Biomch-L to allow only
    questions and summaries. Some topics require a public
    discussion, and I personally feel that the work-energy discussion
    is one of those topics. So, please don't hesitate to start and
    contribute to such discussions. More specific questions, such as
    'who knows a manufacturer of...' are better dealt with by private
    replies and a public summary.

    For the benefit of a discussion, try not to react too quickly.
    E-mail on cyclic motion can easily become cyclic E-motion :-)

    Thanks Paolo de Leva, for offering to summarize. I think we
    absolutely need that eventually, but right now I see no reason to
    stop the public discussion. There still seems to be some
    progress being made.

    If the large volume of mail is a problem, consider the INDEX
    option, or browse Biomch-L using gopher://
    Wasting network bandwidth is not an issue anymore, considering
    how much is used by other services such as WWW. I get the
    impression that most subscribers are happy with the 'delete' key,
    and so am I.
