I'm truly, deeply sorry that the discussion has affected you that  
way, Robin. :-(

Just as Sir William of Weir and Phillipa Rookhaven ("Pippa") will  
always be my first Baron and Baroness, you will always be my first  
Bard. Gerald inspired me to actually *learn* some music; Avatar  
humiliat... er, inspired me to actually learn something *about*  
period music; Kat inspired me to try to keep up (impossible though  
that may be); Finnacan inspired me to be careful who I go into a  
men's shower with (*grin*); but you are the one who inspired me to  
take up bardic as a path, and you still inspire me. Seriously.

We've dredged up some ghosts of the past... but that had to happen, I  
think, before we could go forward -- together -- with a clear mind  
and an unburdened heart. And something else is happening, too. I  
think it's fair to say that in the past few days we've changed from a  
collection of individuals who happen to be subscribed to this e-list,  
to a group with a common purpose.

I think we're still *very* early in the process... but a process has  
clearly begun. I look forward with *great* anticipation to see how  
the next chapter turns out. :-)
