There have been a number of angry statements in recent group messages. People in this group should take the time to study what the others say carefully, and preferably not respond in anger. It is more likely that there are some misunderstandings involved.
They should also realise that we come from different scientific backgrounds where there are different scientific cultures and different scientific languages.
The value of the group is precisely that we disagree about quantum foundations, are passionate about the topic, and hope to contribute to resolution of disagreements.
I know I am no angel myself. But as one of the two group managers I would like to mention:
(1) a lot of messages are being held up automatically in a “moderation queue” by Google’s AI systems, which seem to notice when people’s emotions run high. The AI classifies angry and emotional emails as spam. I get to see a list of them every time the queue has reached size 15. I then manually approve all 15. Just recently this has been happening almost every day
(2) thoughtfully use the Reply button or the Reply-all button. Probably you just want to mail to the whole group; you don’t have to reply to the individual who last posted on a particular thread. Though in view of issue (1) you might want to add the email address of one or two persons whom you particularly want to address
(3) there is no need to include in your email a complete quoted copy of the previous email, especially not when it contains a complete quoted copy of another previous email, when it contains … You could for instance just quote the sentences which you are particularly reacting to. There is no need to quote the whole discussion. (Possibly the moderation queue is being fed by people whose emails contain copies of earlier emails of others in the group, in which angry words were used)
(4) feel free to start new topics. I believe that you all have permission to do so. This group is hardly moderated at all, we rely on your civilised behaviour and reasonable internet skills
Do ask me (or Alexander de Castro) if you have any problems with all this.
