Re: [BKARTS] BOOK_ARTS-L Digest - 13 Feb 2007 to 14 Feb 2007 (#2007-45)

THURS, 2/15/07
From Norman Shapiro
Subject: Adrienne & Signa (knit Picking) (killing the messengers)

Perhaps every reader and lurker who writes a post should know the niceties
as to making it less cumbersome to read the following day's entrees. Perhaps
there should be a how to list or a template made available to achieve this
ideal. Let's not denounce them, ' kill the messengers' or call them knit pickers, etc.

Art is long and life is short. BOOK_ARTS-DIGEST is what it is. Not perfect.

I agree. It costs me whenever I get the digest repeated like this.

Please remember to put the location in the Subject line so we know to skip
it if not relevant.

Thank you.

I agree, it's annoying as hell to have to scan through an
announcement just to find out what state it's in.  Obviously, people
need reminding.

"so we  know  to skip

Sorry again,

But, maybe it's just the way Signa said it. (see above)
Relevant to who...?, just her and
some elite group (who's the WE).

I enjoy veiwing all the lists, except the "Knit-Picky" ones.

Subject: Re: Always Complaining...WHY?

I read and digest all emails on this listserve every day (almost), with the
idea that I may send them on to members of Hand Bookbinders of California.
(Always with attribution.) We are a serious group of craftsmen, and I
screen emails carefully: workshops in Maine, Boston, South Carolina, etc.,
are not of usual interest to our members; the discussion of techinique and
supplies are of great interest to our group. We're not an "elite" group,
just serious members of a respected and important craft. I devote a great
deal of time each day to this activity. I have the time available and wish
to add to my own and the knowledge of my colleagues. Silly me.

Others read this listserve for other reasons. For several years, there has
been discussion of stating the location of activities in the Subject line.
The reason is that persons far afield of these locations may choose to
delete the emails based on location.

Hand Bookbinders of California is a 35 year old organization devoted to the
book arts, especially the traditional binding techniques of Western Europe
and the Orient. We welcome anybody who is interested in anything about the
worth and making of books.

(It's nit picking, as in head lice, I believe.)
