Subject: apologies

Dear colleagues,

Again with the apologies -- this time for (a) my continuing inability to
outwit Eudora, about which Robin Cover in the next meesage gives very
helpful advice; and (b) the messages inadvertently sent out directly to
Humanist without first passing through the usual editorial
process. Simply a human error this time. Thanks to Linda Wright, in the
message after Robin's, for graciously attributing the problem to
software. Of course in the best of all possible worlds, software would be
smart enough to admonish us when we stray from the path of editorial
righteousness. Or perhaps that would not be the best of all possible
worlds. (Warning: North American joke follows.) Just consider Data's

The re-send message was marginally better. I think you want to turn
off "printed quotable" in your Eudora setup. My understanding
is that if Eudora finds even ONE "hi bit" char in the email file,
it will use the MIME encoding, and turn all line ends into literal
'=20' and so forth.

Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to report that my mail
options for HUMANIST seem to have broken. I usually receive
the digest form but am now receiving individual postings
throughout the day. It seemed best that I let you know in
case this is indicative of a larger problem. Thank you for
your help.
