More Thoughts on Editorial Editorializing (Patrick Mears, -Germany, 02/21/21 4:22 am)

I am relatively new to WAIS and obviously did not come up "through the ranks" via Professor Hilton's program.

In brief, I believe that it would be a huge mistake for John E to withdraw from his role as moderator. I am afraid that an open-ended, undisciplined "chat room" for WAIS would ultimately descend into chaos, causing many members to "vote with their feet" and decide to leave, in one form or another.

In one sense, this entire episode concerning our former President who lost the election fairly and squarely gave me some valuable insights as to how the group dynamics work and should work in this Forum. So I vote "No"-that you should not cut your communication cables and retreat to a rural refuge in historic Lenawee County, Michigan.

Keep up your valuable work here, please.

JE comments: Pat, once again I'm flattered by the encouragement.  I note with relief that the events of November 3rd, the following uncertainty, the January 6th "Putsch," and now the Trump impeachment trial are fading into history.  Tempers have cooled for the time being, a good thing.  On the other hand, the number of "clicks" on WAIS more than doubled during the election brouhaha.

Pat, you first appeared on WAIS in February 2014--happy anniversary!  After seven years, I consider you a WAIS veteran.  You are one of our most active and gracious colleagues, and a fellow Michigander to boot.  Bless you.
