At least one person thinks it was a serious error of judgement to
circulate even anonymous comments without permission of the writer.
So clearly it was.  I apologize to anyone who feels this way.  I
clearly should have asked people for their permission first.  As a
poor excuse for poor jdugement, I take refuge in the press of so many
requests for me to share the responses.

My thought was that the divergent views expressed show that there is a
real need for someone to carry out a systematic survey and exposition
of the semantic ideas coming out of linear logic.  I hope that the
message will lead to more light, not heat, on linear logic and
relations to other parts of logic.  But, again, I do aplogize to
anyone who feels ill-used.  -Jon Barwise
