I rarely have occasion to step in and play referee. Sadly, I do so now. I
have received e-mails and phone calls asking me to intervene.
First order of business is to maintain civility. Please do so.
Secondly, let's keep on topic. This is a list for discussions of
sustainable agriculture. Please focus on sustainable agriculture in your
discussions. If you want to take the discussion off the list and continue
it privately, that's standard practice if the content is not of interest to
Victoria Mundy has offered to host a (temporary) list to continue this
discussion. I'll paste her message below. That discussion was to begin
August 26. See below for details.
Finally, when replying to a message, please cut and paste relevant parts of
the previous message(s) rather than including all of the text from all of
the messages in the thread. I'll be glad to help anyone who is not sure how
to do this.
Thanks for your cooperation!. I get lots of very positive feedback about

Apologies for cross posting......
Some of us on SANET are going to hold an off-list discussion of what the
scriptures of different religions have to say about agriculture. If you
would like to join us, please send me an e-mail off list and I'll add your
name to the mailings. Thanks to those who have already responded.
This conversation will be limited to August 26-Sept. 1, so that we don't
get a whole new listserv!
You do not have to be a religious scholar by any stretch of the imagination
(I'm sure not) and you may simply listen although I hope everyone will
contribute at least a little something. Any scripture from any religion is
fair game. If your religion doesn't have scriptures, stories are welcome.
We will simply be comparing what the different writings and stories say,
NOT in any way discussing which is better or more true or more worthy. The
more the merrier, everyone is welcome who is willing to follow the basic
ground rules of courtesy, respect, and non-judgmental listening.
Hoping many will join us and looking forward to it,
Dept. of Agronomy
