Some how I knew something like this was going to occur.
bad it is not legitimate.
Define "Offensive Language" in the context of these not
"Rules" and the referenced post, Harald? How is it offensive? It seems
pretty much a "Descriptive" reference to me.
As you know this will fail, but that is fine. How have
you handled the
complaint I sent on yourself Harald? Or are you ignoring that one?
What was the nature of the complaint? Are we going to see
or this so called complaint? How was this decision arrived at? On what
basis without recourse on my part to rebut, is this decision made?

The list monitor has received a complaint from Joe Kelsey about the post
apparently sent from Jeff Williams <email@example.com> that is archived
at the URL http://www.dnso.org/clubpublic/ga/Arc03/msg01214.html
The list rules say that:
- The messages must be relevant to the business of the GA
- The messages must observe a minimum of decorum, including:
- Not indulging in personal attacks, insults or slander
- Not using offensive language
This message does not observe a minimum of decorum, is a personal attack,
and uses offensive language.
Therefore, I declare that the person known to the list as "Jeff Williams
<firstname.lastname@example.org>" has had his posting privillege to the GA list
revoked for 2 weeks, starting today, February 7, 2000, and lasting until
not later than Monday, February 21, 2000, 12:00 GMT.
The substance of the offending posting is reproduced below.
Appeals may be addressed to the GA chair.
A personal note: This action does not relate to the opinions brought forth
in this message, which is no different than the opinions expressed in many
other messages from the same person. The action relates solely to the way
in which those opinions are expressed.
