[ga-full] Re: [ga] Exclusion of Jeff Williams for 2 weeks
Michael and all,
I made the post to which Harald referred to. I do not deny that.
I have stated clearly I think why I believe this SELECTIVE
CENSORSHIP in my case is questionable at best, and in all
honesty any form of CENSORSHIP is WRONG, clearly.
I know also of no announcement or post from anyone as
to where or how to subscribe to JUST the CENSORED/filtered
DNSO list now being imposed without mandate upon the
Assembly members. It seem that is by design... I may
be mistaken there.... I f it is not, than poor management
is therefore the only other explanation.
Michael, you comments on "Decorum" are well taken I am sure.
As the current and newly IMPOSED DNSO "Harald rules"
list rules are not well defined leaves the application to only one
person which I assume, is Harald himself. How predictable.
