For the most part I was impressed that this discussion didn't degenerate
very far, it shows the list has matured somewhat as compared to days of
the past. But the discussion has drifted significantly, there were a
large volume of posts, and we need to be a little sensitive to other list
members. Sure, I can hit delete, and you can hit delete, but many people
just say why am I wasting time wading through this crap when I want to
hear about native fishes and leave the list, which is to no-ones

Anyway, I felt that this thread had gone far enough and it was time to
bring it to an end. Perhaps we can move on and ignore further posts on
this whole issue or else we are just going to create another email thread
with nothing to do with native fishes.
