Those shallow breathers may want to wait to exhale before posting
anything on human tracks, hammers or fingers found with dinosaurs.
This type of thing is _Creationism_ and is expressly forbidden by the rules 
of the list.  

The list is also insistent on using the proper scientific terms when
discussing dinosaurs.  It is not a newspaper that is written for an 8th
grade educated audience, nor is it Dinosaurs 101.   

For a better understanding of the dynamics and evolution of the Dinosaur 
List, new members are urged to read the archives, starting with the 1994 
posts.  List posters have changed quite a bit, but most timely happenings 
of dinosaurian note have been discussed in the four years that are available 
for review.
You'll be amused, delighted, infuriated and better dinosaur-educated.  
You will also learn that the Dinosaur List does not do people's homework.
