I'll add to this that we have to be careful to  know who we're replying to. 
 I had intended to reply privately to  an earlier post but realized that my 
message had gone to the entire list.   Sorry about that.

There is a  thread that I believe began from frustration over something that
happened  at a recent chapter meeting and the individual who began the 
made an  honest attempt to address the issue without publically mentioning
names.  Let me encourage you to not post messages that are critical of our
members  or guests. When problems arise andnames start creeping in,  public
listserves probably are not the right forum to discuss or try to  repair
damage. Nor does it reflect positively on our organization. Old  fashion
forms of private communication between select members may be more  effective
in resolving problems and/or developing strategies to prevent  future

This is not directed at any one post.  However, these kind of threads pop up
from time to time and the more people  that get involved the more damaging
the discussion can become. I've said  before, our listserve is open and a
window to the world. We don't always  know who is observing what we do and
how our conversation will impact their  interest in becoming part of us or
deciding they will not.  

Hopefully we all know that some things are not appropriate on Facebook  or
Twitter. Well remember a listserve is not much different when it is an  open
listserve, as ours happens to be. It's a great place to post anything  we
want to be public.

I post this as the list moderator for  consideration.
