It seems to me that one of the things that makes the Histonet work is
camaraderie that has developed over the years.  While the primary
purpose of
this server is to create an open forum to for the exchange of
about "Histology" we all bring our personalities to those exchanges -
if we never ask a question or write a reply.  And if the exchanges don't
always have to do with "histological topics" is what we have to say any
valuable to the others on the Histonet?

It seems to me that the "human" exchanges are part of what creates the
environment of sharing.  All too often the "professional" persona can
in and we become protective of what we know because it makes us special.
The willingness to share is thwarted by our need to be perceived as
"experts" or our fear of being perceived as wrong.  By sharing laughs
embarassments and human moments from time to time we help perpetuate the
sharing environment that this server thrives on.  So instead of asking
people not to respond, not to share what they know or feel and to always
"professional"  - lighten up and use the delete button.

Just my opinion.
