> I don't understand the issue with wanting Dr. Bob only for part of the talk. How is that excluding him? I wouldn't invite my therapist either. Some of the things we talked about weren't really for the consumption of psychiatrists, IMO.
> But if you all want him the entire time, that's fine with me. You guys arrange whatever you want, and I'll come if I can.
> I don't need this kind of grief for trying to arrange something fun. It's already not fun.

oh, good grief... no. do what you want with it. *really*. i'm not putting on a funny tone...

'Some of the things we talked about weren't really for the consumption of psychiatrists'


no grief. for reals.

it is funny how most people can agree on a goal like 'don't exclude people' but then have very different ideas about how to interpret that. e.g., invitation only small boards. invitation only (restricted) chat rooms. invitation only (not dr bob) chat... and then i suppose there are issues of advertising quite apart from exclusion. e.g., being findable via google or facebook or...

different people have very different views, i guess...

it is an interesting thought, though, i think...

how do you feel about failure to advertise rather than exclusion? i mean...

here is an example:

i asked for permission to 'audit' (sit in on without paying course fees) a university class. there are two ways that can be viewed:
- of course. she was interested enough to find out about the class and email the lecturer for permissions.
- of course not. imagine if everyone wanted to do that. there wouldn't be enough seats in the theatre.


publicly advertising a public lecture...

... in an 'out of the way' place (e.g., embedded within a particular school of studies website) vs a place with more traffic (e.g., university homepage) vs a place with even more (general) traffic (e.g., a local paper).
