(Just a gentle nudge to put people back on target.)
Short message: Discussions about potted fruit trees ARE topical and
the scope of this list. Remember that there is a wide climatic variation
for this list's coverage.
So keep on discussing it all you like. If you find a new topic somehow
distasteful, consult the user's guide of your email program for the best
means on how to delete those messages.
Please, please, please . . . spare the group (and yourselves) the time
energy invested in "meta-dissertations" about what is--and
(Hint: arguing about "what's topical" aint' topical.)
This list has been run with a hands-off approach that allows a fairly
range of topics. That same hands-off approach has also permitted the
continued participation of individual group members who might have been
banned on other lists.
At some point in the future I may decide on narrower criteria for
topics--and list participation. I'd prefer to avoid that if possible.
One does not have to be a member of NAFEX to belong to this list. It was
discussed in the past, but deferred at this time. There are fervent
supporters on both sides of that issue. It was one of the first topics
discussion and seems to pop-up every few years as a topic of discussion.
NAFEX does not pay anything toward the costs of administration, since th
list is hosted for free on IBIBLIO. I receive no compensation (now or at
any point in the past) in the form of either cash or benefits.
Happy to help,
