Active participation in DistList

From: Barbara Appelbaum <aandh>
Date: Thursday, June 11, 1998
At the recent AIC meeting, several people mentioned to me my
participation on this list.  I told them that I would like to see
more people contribute. I believe that the readers and writers on
this list have been unfailingly polite, tolerant, and aware that we
are not writing researched dissertations but off-the-top-of-our-head
notes that are meant to be maximally helpful while at the same time
an efficient use of our time.  I believe that flare-ups, as "nice"
as they been, primarily stem from the possibility that professional
advice may be used by untrained people to do work they shouldn't be
doing, that is, that our efforts to help preserve objects may
potentially be harmful to them.  We are not an unkind group. In any
case, the reason I am writing is to encourage more people who
ordinarily read but do not write to chime in.  Questions from many
sources have sparked very interesting discussions.  Don't be shy!
