My comments could neither be qualified as libel nor slander so they did not pose a danger to anyone. Nobody could have sued either me or the moderator for my comments. I am complaining because I was prevented from telling lazy ignorants off. It is this "enforcing the morality" that I am complaining about and that is what turned the oracle-l into a useless high traffic forum. In addition to that, such danger no longer existed when he banned me for bad behavior.
Things being as they are, I still consider Steve Adams a prudish prick who has single-handedly destroyed once useful list. I am not coming back, as long as he's the moderator. The sooner he gets lost from the list, the better.
