  Thank you Dr. Cross,  yours has been  a Thorough treatment of the matter at 
hand" or is it a "compact biography?" of me.  Thank goodness it is not a "Love

  I want to support Mary's comments.  Not only is Guido vigorously trying to
     impose his standards, but he has made this a very unpleasant list with
  which to be associated.  He routinely downs other volunteers, forgetting
  that we, too, are customers as well as volunteers, but he also wastes list
  bime with humor which is very often off point.  That might even be okay, but
  express a view with which he disagrees, and suddenly your entire personality
  is suspect. You are discussing things which have already been resolved, even
  though he might be the only one who thinks so.
