Re: Cochlear mechanics and public discussions

Although I would hate to be disrespectful of my friend and colleague Al
Bregman, I would like to keep the discussion "public". After all, the
hearing community is pretty small as is. Why fracture a family into
minuscule sub-families? Even if one does not understand everything in a
given argument, the gist and the trust do transpire and, in some
idiosyncratic manner, they end up bettering our imperfect understanding of
the mysteries of hearing.

I agree that the subject is important, for if we don't understand how the

higher level percepts?

However, I believe that circumscribing the range of discussions on this list
probably isn't necessary. People who aren't interested in a certain subject
heading can just push the Delete button, as they always have (that's what
subject headers are for). However, if enough people thought a second list
was a good idea, I would go along with the majority's wishes.

What do other list members think?
