[ RadSafe ] NET iquette

Apropos the criticisms flying back and forth between a number parties on radsafe 
about various personal matters unrelated to health physics, I recall a quote 
from a wonderful book, "The Portable Curmudgeon" by Jon Winokur:

                          "He is a perfectly balanced individual. He has a huge 
chip on both shoulders."

The author of The Portable Curmudgeon, Mr. Winokur, is described on the book 
jacket, as I recall:

                          "Mr. Winokur lives in Pacific on Pines, California. 
He's been in a bad mood since 1965."

I cast my vote that ad hominem attacks between different parties on radsafe 
should be severely limited [i.e. directed only at parties I don't like :-) ].

Apparently, it appears that I do have such free time. 

Some private and state/federal employers feel that it is a component of public 
outreach to allow employees to post to a list of this nature. Some prefer to 
have their people post a tiny disclaimer. I don't see how this could possibly be 
a problem?
