APPEAR would be an appropriate word.  I believe they are invalid, and that this is about censorship.  I do not believe this "ramming" is how any other body would do it.   Hence, my continued objection.  REGARDLESS - we disagress on this point.

It is my contention that some people intend to censor them.  And maybe me too.  And maybe Elen.  The point is--censorship is not right.  Bias rules are wrong, fair rules are fine.

YES.  That is how I characterize it.

Does it feel that good to oppress people?  I mean, really, you must watch horror movies and root for the bad guys...

Kudos to Roberto and Harald for drawing that line.

I don't think its proper to characterize people that don't exist on this list.  You know William, if you scare off everyone that you can just send yourself messages all day...

It's not my choice.  I'd like to stay.  You're being oppressive.  I won't stand for it.
