Thanks; glad you like my efforts. I occasionally add *informed* comment to
this material, otherwise it goes out straight.

An excellent suggestion. I, for one, would *not* publish anything they
didn't want published but this would constrain the controllers to add
"don't publish" to everything they say. A better way would be, as before,
to put those individuals in the loop and then they could prepare "news",
*seek permission*, and then publish, thereby taking the (possibly onerous)
task away from the controllers so they could get on with the job in hand.

Personally, I am horrified at some of the speculation thats been flowing
on the -bb. It does no-one any good.
