Hi Greg

Please let me apologise to you and other members of the list for posting my
reply publicly.  This was unintended and accidental on my part.  I don't know
how I made the error but I somehow thought that your post was onlist.

Fotunately there was nothing intensely private apart from your low opinion of my
abilities.  I'd say that opinion has, if possible, sunk even lower now ;-).

You have also said about my posting of Karl Auerbach's work:
> (quoting his entire proposal was also bad etiquette)

There are some strong views on these topics as you demonstrated with your
vigorous private message.  I appreciate you are very competent but in other
cases these negative views are superficial and uninformed.  Karl Auerbarch's
proposal is the only one that I have seen which explains an alternative
viewpoint impartially.

It may sound boorish given my mistake above but I am less concerned with
etiquette than I am with truth and justice.  I don't believe that multiple roots
are necessarily a "bad thing" either technically or politically and I think this
will be proved in time.

Meanwhile that you for the references.  I will discuss them with you later.

Anyway, I'm sorry it happpened.

Best regards
Patrick Corliss
