Re: [ga] Mailing List Abuse
Complaint Against William X. Walsh
Grounds: Personal Attack, Insults and Slander
That I abuse my position as Alternate Chair.
"Let's not say that the process is fair, at least not with you involved in
I will not attempt to defend myself against personal attacks any further. I
simply note that Mr Walsh has slandered me in the following post. Mr Walsh
is free to submit a complaint should I exceed the cross-posting limit (with
or without the titles).
With 35 posts allowed per person per day, and very many outside lists
available for cross-posting, I would appreciate hearing from any person who
is in favour of allowing unrestrained cross-posting across any or all lists.
The list members can decide for themselves whether they wish to achieve
anything constructive on this forum. Meanwhile the list monitors can
adjudicate my complaint. Of course, I will not be involved in the process.
