Dear SciArt Listserv Folk,

	I am writing in response to the very recent post on scanned birth 

	This is a professional list serv created to provide community 
support for natural science illustrators, educators, natural science 
artists, scientists, students, and so on.

	As stated in the past, tangential content that supports the 
community, such as concerns for members in the face of natural 
disaster, is appropriate. We are a professional organization that 
works well because we also view each other as colleagues and treat 
each other with compassion and respect.

	Tangential comments that are not really designed to support the 
community of members, such as politically motivated postings, are not 
appropriate and are a detriment both to the professionalism and to 
the community spirit of this group. Indeed, it is possible that some 
of the postings are tongue-in-cheek, yet that does not translate well 
in this venue. Misunderstandings are not worth the posting.

	Please count to ten and then delete something before sending that in 
fact may have little redeeming value to the cameraderie of the 
discussions here. This is your own professional persona you are 
projecting here as well, please remember. This venue ought not to be 
an arena for political sniping and wars of opinion.

	Thank you for your consideration of my thoughts.

	Most sincerely,
