hello tim and june,

thanks, point _well_ taken.

and thanks to brian for explaining better what i tried to explain yesterday;

>In my experience of writing papers - not in the food science area but in another technical field - it is usual to prepare a concise but accurate summary of the topic. To take 10% of the length of the original text as a summary is exceptionally long. To take this space and to omit key information is also exceptional. Perhaps the authors of the paper should be encouraged to re-examine their summary with these points in mind?

i think everyone missed my point;

to leave out the most important part in the 9 page summary,
TO CUT THE TITLE OF THE RESEARCH PAPER IN HALF
as to omit the most important part, just to bury it in 68 page full text,
i still think is wrong, IF you are trying to be up front with the public.
whether or not i read the full 68 pages yesterday was not my point,
my point was in the 9 page summary, which i did read and that most
would read. just my opinion and evidently my opinion is not welcomed here,
so i will not comment on the full text version, of which i have now read...

as for the great wizard of oz comment ;

>I didn't see terry's postings as I killfiled him long ago.
>The only person in this group I have ever done that for.

not worth commenting on...

at any rate, as far as i am concerned, this thread is dead.

kind regards,
terry
