Replying to LO6393 --

I'll agree with the spirit of Julie's (below) which I take to be: "It's
often harder to write a good short message than to say the same thing in a
long msg. If you can say it in a short msg, please try to do so."

But, some of the discussion here seems to require longer msgs. In the
feedback which I receive, it's clear that many people have found great
value in some of the longer messages.

So, I want to add: "If you need to make a longer message, go ahead; these
are welcome on Learning-org."

And, finally, the expectation here is that people will read selectively.
We should not expect that every subscriber will read every message.

Hope you're enjoying Learning-Org!
