(:>) Thank you very much for your patience during our interval of "technical difficulties beyond our control". I have been assured by the highest authorities that such will not recur. While we've been out of touch there has been _amazingly_ rapid progress in the CADRE/revolution thread. I'll tell you more soon, but for now please take a browse at "http://cyberjournal.org" and let me know what you think. There is indeed a story behind our mysterious temporary absence... ...some kind of communication foul-up within our otherwise wonderful CPSR organization led to the list being taken down WITHOUT NOTICE. My concern mounted daily as I fruitlessly and repeatedly sought assistance from the usually-supportive folks at CPSR. When a reply finally arrived -- many days after the list disappeared -- I mis-interpreted the message as declaring we had been permanently ousted. My mis-interpretation seemed only to be reinforced by a subsequent exchange with CPSR director Duff Axsom -- the communication foul-up had now spread to all concerned including myself. What awesome waves we mortals spread, when first we jump to join a thread. Convinced that CPSR had destroyed our community in a high-handed way, I broadcast strident missives of moral outrage throughout the far-reaches of cyberspace. I was declaring WAR on CPSR -- CYBERJOURNAL SHALL NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT; CENSORSHIP WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! Poor Duff will probably be fielding protest letters for weeks. At this point, he sent me a friendly personal note, recounting the steps of misunderstanding, and expressing support for our work on cyberjournal. He agreed to get the list back up right away and to tighten up procedures to prevent inadverdent shutdowns such as we experienced. Each of us involved, including myself, humbly regrets the link we contributed to the escalating chain of misunderstanding. But, in all honesty, I'm rather pleased with the outcome. I hadn't the pleasure before of meeting our CPSR Director. I now feel a mutual understanding and sense of solidarity with CPSR that I, in all fairness, should have endeavored to cultivate earlier. I hope in future there can a more collaborative relationship between the work we do on cyberjournal and CPSR's programs more generally. I invite, nay urge, Duff, Marsha, and Susan to subscribe to cj and to monitor what we're up to. I'm sure they could toss an occasional comment to the list which might better inform our understanding of how we fit into CPSR's mission. We move forward this day with a more solid foundation for our list, and I welcome you all back to what is going to be one hell of an exciting year. Stay tuned to this channel.
