Dear colleagues,

This is to remind you, or perhaps to mind you, for the first time,
that because of technical difficulties anyone who sends a message for
posting on Humanist should watch carefully to make sure it survives
various invisible but nonetheless real perils and actually gets
circulated. Humanist is as I write being rebuilt from the ground up.
Later in the Summer the new Humanist, looking exactly like the old
except for some lovely new interface functions on the website, will
be unveiled. The main difference will be in its reliability and
protection from spam. Until then all messages should be sent directly
to me as well as to the normal Humanist address. Once again, please
be advised that I never deep-6 a message without telling the author
of it, and that the number of times that has happened in the last 21
+ years could be counted on the fingers of two hands, most of those
in the very early days when there were fewer opportunities to be
obnoxious online. Ah, for the good old days when we had our very own
village idiots and bullies! Now everything's so civilized.
