Re: Andre appears again

Mark -

No to diminish the sizable and real contributions Andre has made to
Loopers-Delight, and other forums where his clear talent has had an
opportunity to inform and enlighten those around him, but there are lots of
people who have received less kudos than they deserve.

I would rather hear from Andre why he does and does not do something than
read speculations from an unrequested spokesperson.  If "moving on" can
bring a person something he wants, I'm glad for Andre.  And it's not
necessarily my business to speculate as to his reasons.

Please excuse my dry tone and language.  It's a problem I have.
