Request for independant verification to:Re: [ga] Re: What list forwards to what list
Karl and all,
I think Karls questions are valid. I would request that a Independent
responsible party such as the Technet group or the Federal Election
Commission be ask to independently verify that these questions be answered
accurately. I would also propose/request that the following questions
1) Has at any time anyone originally or otherwise ever been restricted
from posting to these list after subscribing?
2.) Has anyone been denied subscription from this list?
