I have made the same mistake on another - and much larger -
listserv. Thank goodness nobody complained, for as a neophyte
I would have been quite embarrassed. Takes a while to get used to
these things, let alone the protocol. I forgive you Doug and all
others who make such errors.
p.s. I wonder if we cannot get a more compelling discussion going.
Something I am very interested in and certainly haven't got any easy
answers to: It is not that difficult to teach students how to
organize and develop essays, but it seems to be very hard to teach
students how to edit successfully. Any suggestions?
