    Your exclamation mark (!) reminds me of an old concern.
    
    Is it a good idea to describe details of interesting objects such as
    SeaSat, the most recent SL/16 r/b's, EGP, the NOSS satellites, etc., or
    is it better simply to let beginners enjoy the thrill of discovery for
    themselves?
    
    I am thinking not so much of censorship of reports and analysis here in
    SeeSat-L, but more of restraint in wide and repetitive publication of
    detailed descriptions and of unnecessary casual mentions.
    
    Cheers.
