i appreciate _ehp_'s response; it should certainly cover the concerns
raised. i will post your decision to the 3 lists i sent my original appeal
to contact _ehp_.
a visible announcement in _ehp_, if you haven't already (gpo mailed the may
issue at the begining of august!) concerning your overall new policies and
explaining what triggered the changes would help allay the concerns i have
been hearing. putting all your publications on the web is a large task,
but does counter the price increases by gpo. i appreciate this solution.
as to niehs' policy of 'free-while-they-last' for back issues of
_supplements_ ... it was nice while it lasted!
thank you for ensuring continued access by all to niehs publications.
