Re: [ga] Exclusion of Jeff Williams for 2 weeks

I note that the archived copy of this message does not display the full
headers.  As a result, it is not possible to form an independent opinion as
to the likelihood of forgery should this be claimed.

I note further that this suspension takes effect immediately, pending
appeal, which is probably not a good rule in a world of potential forgery.

No information has yet reached me as to how one subscribes to the
unfiltered version of the list.  If I happened to have missed this posting
to the list, would someone kindly forward me the URL at which it is
archived?  I am certain that the management would never impose filtering
without first giving everyone a clear choice as to which feed they wished
to receive.

As a final note, I wonder how the level of decorum to be required on this
filtered list will compare to the standards of, say, the Australian or
Israeli parliaments?
