By the way...

I'd like to borrow a page from Finnacan, who wrote:

Having come thus far in these dialogs, I find myself back at this  
point where Finnacan stood in ages past (one week ago).

I had set out to contribute to our hobby and to help my friends from  
within the confines of my current real life. But in doing so what I  
mostly accomplished, it seems, was just to flood this list. Shame on  
me. You have my sincere apologies.

You who are reading this stand among the bards of Ansteorra. No, I  
don't think that we, the bards of Ansteorra, need a guild to define  
who we are. I do think that we need to do a better job of getting out  
there and doing (or hosting) bardic, and standing together when it  
matters, and communicating to each other, and being recognizable to  
non-bards. Any other debate -- about semantics, or history, or  
whether we can be a functional community of bards without filing  
papers with the College of Heralds -- is just a distraction from  
working towards those goals.
