Re: [GreenYes] Re: The need for respectful diagreement / attitudes toward capitalistic economies
Dear Paul:

I sympathize greatly with your comments.  But let me clarify mine.  I am not
taking this position because I wish to defend the current administration's
actions and policies.  That is not the case. Nor am I suggesting that anyone
check their sense of outrage or indignation while communicating with this
list.  My concern is to for Greenyes to be a respected conduit for dialogue
and debate conducted vigorously, honestly, courteously and professionally.
This is why I object to ad hominem attacks, rude remarks, off-base humor or
simple ranting.  Doing this only lessens our credibility, not enhances it.

Sincerely,

Roger M. Guttentag
