I apologize for the appearance of my email, it was not my attention to
chastise anyone.  I was responding point by point, not trying to
argue.  As I stated, the discussion as of now has not gotten to that
beyond lively point, but I fear it will happen as this is how it has
ended up in the past.  Please forgive me for being concerned  about
this, as it is not my place to moderate, nor do I really want that
job.  My intention was to keep this discussion at a lively debate,
however I feel that I may be the cause for any turn that may occur.
Once again I apologize to the list.  Please everyone, have fun with
this topic and resume normal debate and I myself will stay out.

I believe our acting Kingdom Seneschal, Pug, is the list moderator.

I say 'seems' because it's always very hard to tell what people really mean when you only see it in writing, with no expression or vocal inflection to temper it.
>   If we're talking about appearance, then I'd like to point out that taking a post and dissecting it paragraph by paragraph appears to me to be much more like badgering than anything else I've seen, not to mention a terrible waste of time trying to read what's yours and what's from before amidst all of those annoying little lesser than/greater than symbols. It strikes me as more of a personal attack, although I can't say for sure, since I didn't write it and wasn't there beside the person to see thier expression, body language, etc.
>   Are you, by any chance, a moderator? If not, isn't it the moderator's job to determine when we're getting past 'lively' and into 'badgering'?
>   Hmm... And now that I'm thinking of it, does this list even have a moderator? I know that Yahoo! and Smartgroup lists do, but I don't really know how these lists function...
>   In closing, I'd like to say that if I were new to this kingdom, or to the SCA, I'd be terrified to say a single thing, ever, on this list for fear of having my head bitten off. And I think that, in the end, that is the appearance that might really matter...
