Subject: Apology and clarification...
I want to first apologize for the message last evening.
Let me explain though that me posting even messages like "I am aware of it"
would have just egged him on. In the last few days I received a number of
emails which were very mean spirited about this entire mess and frankly made
me want to just stop dealing with it entirely.
I feel confident now that this issue is resolved as we have seen this
individual attempt a number of times now today and last evening to continue
his antics with no luck of getting in.
Believe me, I was not sitting by the side and just watching what was going
on. I deeply care for all of you on the list and value your contributions
and I just felt it best not to comment until we had a handle on everything
since he was using my name to propagate the problems. When your reputation
is tarnished from this guy it doesn't help your attitude. It frankly
angered me very much.
Many hours were also spent investigating new listserv options.
So, again, my sincerest apology. It has been a very very rough couple of
weeks for me on a number of fronts which I won't go into here, but suffice
it to say it was the straw that sparked things. Again, a sincere apology to
