Please note that the comment I posted on November 16 (quoted in part by Tom Clark on December 8) was designed solely to announce my intention not to criticize comments posted by people I did not know. (I had just learned via a private post that I had unwittingly taken to task a beginning student.) I offered no opinion about whether such comments should continue or whether the lsit should be changed. At this point, I have no particular opinion about either issue. Bethany
