"Let the thread die"? Are you daft, Mladen didn't let it die at all. Here is the message header from his mesage in which he continued to INTERFERE AND ATTEMPT TO DISRUPT with other people's legitimate conversation:

    Bergman I guess that "certain types" of people *will* "get recourse" on the list, and "others" won't?

As far as I'm concerned your policy is incompetent (double standard), and I will be sending a complaint to Bruce and Fatcity that the once respectable, open, public list has become a haven for unix bigots.

(feel free to unsubscribe me if you don't have the time to do a proper job running the list in a fair manner).
