Dear "Lmhem111"

I had to laugh over your vision of a ULT meeting "heavily
moderated and very orthodox"  Wow -- you ought to attend some
when we are all searching for answers and the questions and
responses fly fast and furious.

I suppose, like everything else, any meting can be made staid and
stolid -- in fact I would say that the nature of those who attend
either depress or lighten any study class -- and all the meetings
at ULT (which are free and open to any one) are study classes and
we are all trying to help each other and find the best answers.
So none should be "heavily monitored."
