I am very sorry about this. I am new to this list too. I am sorry for that
spelling remark, but I had just had some drops too many, myself. (And it is
not in all cultures as appropriate to correct someone in that way. Where I
live, it isn't normally done, I am sorry for that too, but it feels wrong
for me, can't help it.)
Please stay on the list, I really did all I can to bury the hatchet.
I really hope you will read this, I would hate it when people would leave
because of a fight for which I share responsibility.
ps. I am very sure that this will blow over and I really hope no one will
deem it necessary to kick me of the list.

Onderwerp: [CELTIC-L] The Cletic List
A few weeks ago I found this Celtic List on the Heanet server. I joined,
having an interest in the subject and hoping I might learn more.
The experience has been most depressing. I'm amazed at the tone of agression
and bitchiness that seems to underlie even the most (apparently) erudite
contributions. The last straw for me had to be the message ticking off a
contributor for correcting another's spelling error - childishness.
I hope you lot are not typical of Celtic scholars.
Please allow me to make one small positive contribution before leaving the
List. I notice that some of you use the character "/" for fada. On most
modern keyboards you can create fada by holding down ctrl and alt as you
type the vowel. ctrl+shift+alt gives a capital letter with fada.
Time to unsubscribe now. Enjoy the civil war.
