Hi again!

While I myself also doubt that Virodene or cryoprotection will become (ever!)
practical with DMF, I would also suggest that the current conversation about
it on Cryonet be better done by private messages elsewhere.

Among the simplest reasons is this: when someone (anyone!) says something in
public, they will then be much more attached to its truth than if they
raise it privately. These discussions do no more than bind each party to 
their existing opinions. This will produce nothing of value for anyone.

The time to raise some point publicly is AFTER its private discussion has
not only failed to produce agreement, but the beliefs cause damage to others.

I am not saying this as a way to urge any kind of censorship on Cryonet. Quite
the contrary! For that matter, I don't claim angelic behavior in this 
regard, either. But I will say that freedom of speech means that we also
take responsibility for what we say, and how we say it. That should not be

				Long long life,

					Thomas Donaldson
