Hi Tom

I think the quick answer is yes, it defintely would be outside list
boundaries to hold such discussions here. This is not based on a desire to
blindly adhere to The Rules; rather experience has shown that virtually all
such discussions rapidly (d)evolve into doctrinal issues that have nothing
to do with the topic at hand. In short, they would not stick to the
"Fridays" that you suggest.

However, that said, I for one agree strongly with what I presume to be your
motivation for asking that question; namely it would be great to have such
a forum for such discussion. However b-greek is clearly _not_ that forum.
