As the originator of this topic, I am refraining from personal comment (I’ve said my piece). However, I have received some input via direct e-mail, from people who have not subsequently posted in this forum. I have offered to post those responses on behalf of those who responded to me in this manner. Before I post anything on someone else’s behalf, I am forwarding them an exact copy of what I will (with their permission) post. For the sake of brevity, I will preface each such post with: “Posted on behalf of <name>, with permission:”
I want all voices to be heard, and have made this offer to all such respondents who are members of NSN, regardless of their viewpoint
they have already made a post of their own.
