Do you-all think it is time to write to Anu and ask him if he'll do something about the problem? I'll do it (unless somebody else wants to volunteer), though it may take me a couple of days: my dau. is on her way home from vacation with an injury, and I expect dealing with that is going to occupy a fair amount of my time. Though I think we should all keep in mind that just because we ask doesn't mean something will be done.

If anyone would prefer not to post, feel free to send me a PM.

Two things: given my foreseen shortage of time, if you have any examples to cite, or any comments you would like passed on to Anu, that would help me out. If I don't get any PM's, and responses to this thread indicate that yes, we should try, I may just refer Anu here. If I do get PM's, I would like either: permission to quote to him, OR specify for me not to quote from you, please. Thanks.

Jackie,

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter's injury; I hope things go well for you both.

Yes, I think someone should write Anu, and I still think yoiu are the best person to do it. I'm sorry that the timing is so difficult. I don't think a lot of "evidence" need be brought; the place is reif with it. Still, if you need help, I'm sure some of us can gather it for you.

Jackie, I'll E you with some ideas on Monday. And yes, I agree you're the best for this job; thank you for taking it on. I hope all is well with your girl.

I don't mind, really. And, thanks, you-all; all I know so far is that she hurt her ankle last night, and that as of this morning it was hurting "really badly" despite her having kept ice on it. She'll be home in another few hours; reckon we'll be seeing a Dr. tomorrow. And, I may be having to do a fair amount of "waiting on" in the near future. We went out this evening and borrowed a pair of crutches, though, so that should help her out.

this too shall pass
Jackie,

As you know, a petition was started some time back that was not followed through with at the time, due to a calming of the situation.

Here it is now, with signatures appended as received to date. You may want to edit actual names back in for submission to Anu; I have edited them out for posting here.
All who want to can reply here now to have their names added.

Possibly there is an archived link some of us newbies or some of us short-term-memory-lossed folk might be directed to for history on this conversation? Or maybe we don't have a need to know . . . which is sometimes a welcomed relief.

Thanks, Jackie.

PS: Father Steve, you can shorten your link to:

http://wordsmith.org/board/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=announcements&Number=143196

and get the same results without widening the page.
