Mark,

I've been fortunate enough to benefit from the wisdom in your posts and
appreciate you taking the time to share your knowledge on the video
librarian listserv. I agree that the listserv is a place for
information about video and not a place to air political rhetoric,
religious views or a preference for a professional sports team (I'm
guilty of the latter on at least one occasion.) However, while Jessica's
quips are bothersome for some list subscribers your reply (attack) was
offensive.=20

There are many ways (off list?) you could have reminded Jessica that her
comments were off-subject and unappreciated. The method you chose was
out of line and unprofessional.

Regards,

John

PS. Please don't confuse the origins of my comments with party
affiliation, I'm not a Bush fan nor was I a Kerry fan (or a Gore fan for
that matter.)

Way to go Mark, I have long thought the list serve was a place for
professional discussion, no commercial re companies and political
discourse. As a vendor, I have kept silent, but to your credit, you can
speak out on the list serve.

Proud resident of North Carolina, enough said.
