As I've said before, if I make mistakes, I'll own up to them. I posted an apology to the list a few moments ago. The moderator won't tell me if he's making anyone else do the same. One of the rules is "no personal attacks", and that one got broken lots of times today by others. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
I'll follow any reasonable rules the owner of a list sets forth - but I have to know about them first! (If I consider the rules unreasonable, I'll simply sign off.) In the future, if someone posts a personal attack on the list about me, I intend to hold the list moderator to his policy.
