Subject: [Leica] adult supervision

An offensive message sent earlier today, supposedly from Marc James Small,
was a forgery. I have obtained the cooperation of Yahoo and have identified
its sender.

A couple of weeks ago I posted to the LUG a message that included
these paragraphs. Please read them.

    In the 10 years the LUG has existed I have only booted
    people five times; three of the five were the same person,
    who I let back on and then booted a second time, and then a
    third time.

    So I've kicked 3 people off the LUG in 10 years. One of the
    3 is now back on as a posting member and, since he's been
    behaving himself, I'm willing to have him back. Another one
    of them is back as a lurker, but hasn't actually posted
    anything under his new address.

See the part where I said "since he's been behaving himself"?
Well, as it turns out, he isn't: this latest diatribe sent from
an assumed name was sent by the same person that I booted for
doing something similar a few years ago. If I recall correctly he
was at that time using the name "Arnold Sung". In recent months
he's been posting under his own name. I will of course remove him
immediately; I see no point in telling you who it is, because he
will just claim I'm wrong, and the discussion will waste
everyone's time. I don't even remember who he slammed last time.

There's nothing I can do to keep him, or anybody, off the list,
because anyone can get a mailbox and join a mailing list. But I
can make it harder for him to post.

I often say on this list that insulting others is a waste of time
because no one changes his opinion of another because of what you
say about him. This kind of posting is a perfect example of that.

Marc, I'll tell you who the attacker was if you promise to keep
the knowledge to yourself.
