He may very well be right that there is need to better deal with
"others", but I hope that Toban understands that this "unwelcomingness"
is related to working on a project that is under constant repression by
the state(s), attack by right wing arseholes and so on..... It is a
difficult balance.......especially without face-to-face contact and
connections it can be very hard to feel what is going on, who is who and
so on - and of course the distant nature of emails also makes it both
easier to be rude and unwelcoming and to misunderstand protection of the
protect/experiment as if it was unwelcomingness....

I am sure that everyone is happy to welcome Toban on this list once he
gets together with a bunch of mates and fellow students to kick off
london/ontario IMC.... meanwhile, I hope that Toban will share his
thoughts, work, and research with 
Imc-research mailing list

ciao,
mp (trying to be happy and friendly!)
