Didn't realize this was a pep rally for GW where only positive critiques
were acceptab.  Thought it solicited honest opinions of his works and even
his motives.   And if anyone should ask for an apology from me it would be
GW not you mantis.  I said nothing regarding you or your motives.

Enjoy your private mailing list.  I'll stick to the public forums such as
rec.arts.sf.written from now on.
