In my experience, this is what is going on. I comment to the list not
mostly to speak to the the person writing, but the 450 other people.
After 9 years and a couple of thousand replies, I have learned to do
this in a somewhat subtle way ... but I would never post this to the
list, which is why I'm writing to you off-list.

Hmmm ... he would have some mighty big shoes to try to fill. Notable
among people who have at one time or other come and stormed in and
stormed out are Eliot, Dominique and jef. These are _serious_ dudes.
Very serious. Heavy. Heavy. Quite a trio if one could ever get them
into a room together (again!).

Characteristic of all three is a steel-like mental discipline, with a
degree of .... er ... potential difficulty in their personalities...
They don't ask questions until they've worked through the issues and
researched and checked. Eliot sets himself the unenviable task of
proving himself wrong. Dominique challenges orthodoxy by having
worked in and through it and found it severely wanting. jef also
carries a sharp edge that the slow and unarmored are warned away from.

But they don't shoot from the lip. They enter discussions informed
and are keen to pick up subtle variations that may open new doors,
lead to new insights.

Hmmm ... I wonder whoever you could be talking about.... I'll ask
around and try and get a name for you. <<8-()))>>>>

chill honey
