Re: [GreenYes] Re: The need for respectful diagreement /attitudes toward capitalistic economies
Hello all,
I am in agreement with Roger. As someone who is new in this field, I joined this list to help with the technical aspects of my job. I was under the impression that this was a rather professional list in nature, and have learned many useful tidbits about recycling. I'm sure there are many other forums where the users are welcome to reading opinions of the Administration.

Sincerely,

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
