Jon, it's your lucky day getting Bruce on board - he's been a fine asset to the Tips Team. And thanks to Martha, too, for all the time and energy you put into Inkwell.

Yep, hope Martha's back by as author again soon, too! Bruce, what fun to have you collaborating here.

Yeah, <inkwell.vue>'s what got me here, too. (Well, specifically, I suppose it was Neil's fault.)

Free candy on the end of the bar for both of you, Jen and Christy. (Gail and Cynthia, too.) More testimonials, while we're at it? Just step up and type into the little white box, then click on POST.

okay, i 've read the first 7 chapters and i should be thru most of it by then!

For the record, a very minor change was made to <inkwell.vue.195.60>. After I posted the reader's message, she wrote back to say she was a little uncomfortable seeinng her full name in the topic. So I asked the management to remove the correspondent's last name from my pseud and from the post itself. We handled it this way because it would have disrupted the flow of the discussion to re-post an edited message down the line, and because there was nothing significant changed in the post.
Gail Williams (gail) Wed 10 Sep 03 17:20
Thanks, that was thoughtful of you guys.
Dennis Wilen (the-voidmstr) Wed 10 Sep 03 17:29
So people can post here without revealing their names? This seems so contrary to longstand WeLL policy as I understand it. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
David Gans (tnf) Wed 10 Sep 03 17:37
Off-WELL posters participate in inkwell.vue discussions by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org I don't see the harm in allowing those people to use a first name only; do you?
Dennis Wilen (the-voidmstr) Wed 10 Sep 03 17:41
Since I have been on the record for years as approving of anonymous posts, I have no problems with it. I wonder why, however, it's no good ON the WeLL?

Special case, and I have no problem with it. This is our showcase for outsiders. If they want to continue to participate, they have to get an account, and they lose the anonymity.
virtual community or butter? (bumbaugh) Wed 10 Sep 03 19:18
When someone sends e-mail to inkwell-hosts, I'm reasonably sure nobody makes a phone call to ascertain whether they are as they appear to be. So, it's bound to be more anonymous than on-Well posting. (I also reckon that those who send mail know a little less than those who post here from on-Well about our varied and storied customs.)
