Leroy -
I vowed not to get involved again in this type of discussion but here
Please name ONE of our members (quite a few of whom are Lepidopterists)
who has called Lepidopterists "greedy collectors".  It is possible there
may be PETA types in NABA.  I never have met any.  Apparently there are
also folks who don't seem quite rational in LepSoc and ATL (I am proud
to belong to all three associations).

> P/S: There is only one thing I fear, every time I crticize NABA in a post on this list. Someone, someplace in Connecticutt on a library computer will attempts to send me a virus or worm. It has happened 14 times since I joined this list. My virus software always interceps it. I will find this person sooner or later. If I can find W. Bryce Richfield, I can find this person as well.

Leroy -
Are you getting cabin fever down there??  We have all on this list -
NABA and non-NABA received viruses.  For a while I was getting two or
three a week.  Perhaps from a collector ;-)  Please lighten up,
