Not to mention that the message that was sent to people who were
subscribed to this unofficial yahoo group without their consent was
deceptive in that it was written to appear as if it was some official
list, and being run by a DNSO mailing list moderator.

The list title and the way the message was signed were clearly

Further you do not subscribe people to lists without their consent,
unless you were the list owner of the original place the list was
hosted, and you are simply moving it.  This was CLEARLY not the case,
the list was an official DNSO list, and this "yahoo group" is not.

That our GA Chair had some hand in this is rather disturbing.
