I guess yeast (and warm water) are not theologically important. The "filioque" addition still causes a few ripples; but with goodwill, it is resolvable IMHO. -------------------------------------------------------------- At 11:19 pm -0400 13/4/00, Nik Taylor wrote:

Probably. But one of the marks of this list is the constant off-topic threads. As And Rosta observed this shows that we are not just a bunch of odd-balls talking about conlangs, but a bunch of chums talking about conlangs & chattering from time to time. I think there's no harm in it as long as it remains just chat. If, e.g. this thread were to turn into an acrimonious wrangle over religion, then I think that would definitely be inappropriate for our list. Thankfully, it has not. Maybe that is yet another sign that we are bunch of chums discussing conlangs in that we tolerate & respects views of our chums even tho we personally may not go along with their beliefs :) And prefixes like CHAT enable those not interested to ignore them, filter them out, trash them or whatever.
