Missive statements by the Illegitimate "Chair" to:Re: [ga] Message from the Chair - List Rules

Roberto and all,

  Roberto, I have changed the subject line on this thread.  The reason
for me doing this shall become easily understandable to you and other
Assembly members in my comments below in response to yours.
(See more below)

  The DNSO GA list ga@dnso.org has been monitored for some time
as you well know Roberto, at least sense August '99.  Trying to mislead
or apply some form of  "Spin" here is a pointless and untruthful nonsense.
In doing so you are only damaging your and the DNSO's creditability,
please discontinue this line of political falsehoods.

  Well this remains to be seen at the very least.

  No this world is not perfect, far from it.  Actions and false statements
that you made above are good examples as to why it is and cannot ever
be a perfect world.  But in your continuing false claims and statements,
you only move things in the wrong of bad direction.  This sort of
action is part of the problem, rather than part of the solution.

  Laws are much different than sanctions.  Laws are decided at least in part

by legal and legitimate representation or directly by those that are
by those laws.  Sanctions are not necessarily.  These "Haralds Proposed
are and example of "Sanctions" that have no mandate.  This even you said
on this very list yourself.
