First off, just because you've sent an email doesn't mean that it got
there.  I send emails all the time that are trapped in spam filters, that
get "accidentally" deleted, or just disappear into the ether that is the
Internet that we know and love.  If I was trying to decide if I should make
a two-hour drive in inclement weather, I would *not* be counting on an email

I don't live in Namron, of course.  I love to come home and visit my Society
family and friends there.  And I try to keep up on what's going on by
information inputs like this mailing list.  I don't think "we can't find a
regular place to have a meeting" is a new issue...it was going on 10, 15,
and 20 years ago when I was there.  And I suspect it'll continue long after
I'm gone.  Unless the Barony is going to go and purchase something (and I'm
betting Matthias doesn't have that much money laying around), this issue
will continue.

Radei, we haven't met yet.  The only impressions I'm getting of you is what
I see here on the list, and so far I'm under-impressed.  I appreciate the
fact that you have to make an extra effort to participate, but it seems like
you have a lot of gripes about how things are going.  If I was a baronial
officer, and I was getting constant emails from someone, and they were
growing to be a larger pain in the neck over time, I might start
"accidentally" deleting them too.  I won't speak for Thomas, since he has
been (to my experience) a very professional baronial seneschal.  I'm
guessing he's not going out of his way to dodge you, but he may also be in a
position where he can't easily reply to your messages.  As a start, the man
works in the field of meteorology, so inclement weather may be a busy time
for him regardless of what else is going on.

I certainly don't want to infringe upon anyone's desire to sit around and
bitch.  I do it, all the time.  Just be aware that bitching on a mailing
list like this, "official" or not, is likely a form of mental masturbation.
I wouldn't count on the world to change because of it.

Care, Bubba
