Re: [council] GA Chair nominations
happy holiday season to you all
those of you who use microsoft outlook or outlook express can
create a "message rule" from one of the unwanted, unsolicited, messages you
receive which will automatically delete from your mail server any messages
received in the future from this source.
this built in program option has saved me significant
time & energy as these spam messages from
babtista,williams,rizzo,davis, etc have never even gotten to my
my very best wishes

Nigel, I think we all have the
same problem. It seems every second message I read has the words
SELECTIVE CENSORSHIP in great big letters and the observation that the sender
cannot post to any of the DNSO lists. Admittedly I haven't examined the
headers in great detail - I simply don't have the time right now, with work
and IPC matters, (perhaps if I didn't have to scan through 20 unconstructive
messages, most of which are probably written by one person masquerading as a
number of different individuals, for every one that is truly relevant to some
real issue, there would be more time left over). But in my more
frustrated moments (such as now), it occurs to me that "censorship" may
possibly not be the best word to describe a situation where not only
can the alleged censored person's posts be read by everyone else involved in
this process along with the writer, these "censored" posts cannot even be
avoided by leaving the very lists the person is allegedly being
censored in! How can these people possibly claim they are being
silenced? Their "silence" is so deafening that hardly anyone else's
voice can be heard and people are being driven to flee from the lists just to
avoid the noise.
