Haven't these things always gone on - except perhaps
at the lydian-mode-on-flute dawning moments? Most of
the harp lists have been either quiet or snipey of
late. Sort of understandable, with the economy tanking
and the sabers rattling - not a congenial backdrop 
for lively or thoughtful discussion.

Also, it's still early days for the revived harp-l.
The pipes are still shuddering and sputtering, and all
the din close up makes barely a whisper from out in
the woods.
