Kent and all Assembly members,

  No you are correct that by looking at the archives one will not be
able to determine whether anyone has been SELECTIVELY CENSORED
except what is already in the DNSO archives at this time.  But the DNSO
list members will know one way or another.  Other list archives will also
carry this information as well.

  You seem to be VERY interested in hiding something Kent....  Why is that?
