I, among many others I'm sure, appreciate all you do in
keeping this list going.  As an instructor, I encourage my
students to subscribe to Tango-L.  However, in the past,
I've also had to qualify it by telling them "there's a lot
of junk emails, but there are a few gems, as well."  I
hope, now, that I won't have to add that qualifying
statement when I encourage folks to subscribe and be part
of this wonderful world of tango.

The flaming, I believe, was one of the reasons the Tango DJ
list was created.  When that list was created, Tango-L saw
a lot less input from musically-informed contributors, who
now spend their time on Tango DJ.  I miss them and I hope
that your efforts might encourage them to participate

rudeness has been stemmed (and they are generally the
civilized people one would LIKE to keep in such a group).
