Dear Lilith,
   A big bug-a-boo of mine on the histonet are these private replies.  There is no net in histo net anymore just histopost.
This was discussed a short time ago, guess the discussion didn't help much.

Dear colleagues,

I appreciate very much the numerous replies you have sent to my basic tissue
processing question. As usual you have supplied the valuable practical
information which will spare me from learning from my own mistakes. That is
one of many reasons why the Histonet is so wondeful!  Thank you very much.

There are couple of things that bother me though and would like to share
with you and be corrected  by you if I am wrong. 

One of them is that all the replies came to me personally, that is the
copies were not sent to the listserver.  So frequently I have seen
questions posted and have seen very few if any replies to them. I guess mine
was one of them. True, my question was very basic but still, there might be
some new histologist that might benefit from the replies. 

The second concern is  that among those many helpful replies there was one
very unprofessional  reply coming from a prominent anatomist. And this one
was posted, even twice! Most of the subscribers that have read the question
and have seen only one offensive reply to it. Don't you think that this will
discourage them from posting questions? If they had seen all the helpful
replies, the negative one would be easily ignored.

I am eager to read your posted  comments on this.
