    You're right. I did not think of that. Sorry.

    I posted to these lists wanting both feedback and to increase awareness
    of the sorts of discussions that have been going on, kind of like Debbie
    Anderson's post on the same topic to the Near Eastern lists.

    I'll have to rethink how to deal with such situations in the future
    should they arise. I DO feel, in general, that broader, more open
    discussions amongst the stake-holding parties is a good thing. In the
    past you have graciously set up email lists to deal with these more
    voluminous sub-topics, like cuneiform, Ugaritic, and Hebrew, but none has
    been set up for Phoenician.
