Re: Principality why do you want to leave

Poster: "Jessica Wilbur" <jessica@pop.net>

Excuse me, but could everyone PLEASE stop posting principality-related messages 
to the Merry Rose?? There is a list set up *specifically* to discuss these issues. That is a 
far more appropriate place to post. I myself am subscribed to the P-list, but I know several 
peole on the Merry Rose who are not, and have no wish to see this stuff here. 

Thank you.
