Re: What list forwards to what list (Re: [ga] Message from theChair)

Harald. Jeff and everybody else,

  I find it very difficult that Harald would have even made such a
suggestion.  It is paramount to saying he wishes to rewrite
the history and determine singularly what should and what
should not be archived or discussed.  That is pure censorship
via fiat as I see it!  Unbelievable!

 either justified or necessary at all?
   Your proposal does not now and did not address these central concerns
 and questions, and possibly as a result the poll taken showed no mandate
 for them.
