[BOAI] Re: Bethesda statement on open access publishing / lengthy comments

I'm not sure I see the usefulness of extraordinarily verbose after-the-fact 
criticism of a positive public statement from the biomedical community.  
Especially in email, terseness counts.  And when trying to achieve larger ends, 
working positively before the fact helps a lot more than postmortem critiques 
of your allies directed at other allies.  And gets read more, too.  --pg
