Re: stuff only / Re: [vox] wiki recommendations

CC'd to Eric's personal box, in case he's been kicked before I got a
chance to respond.

Pete, I do think you're going a little overboard to expect that that
particular personal mail be excluded from posting, as it had directly
to do with the manner in which he posted; and his response was to
correct the problem. It wouldn't make sense for him to do that without
an explanation of why he corrected it; and including your message
seems appropriate to me, considering there is no personal or
confidential material in it.

But Eric, your post below is completely uncalled-for; it is nothing
but kick-bait, and I would not be in the least bit sympathetic with
you should Pete decide that this is justification for your removal
(but then I suppose you're expecting that). Not only is the text of
your message inflammatory, but you've *completely* and deliberately
ignored his request that you keep personal mail off the list, by
posting a personal mail yet again. *And* apparently ignored the
reply-to setting as well (no ribs about the list's reply-to munging,
please). If I were Pete, I'd sure as hell kick you. Whether Pete's
response seems appropriate or not, your counter-response is way, *way*
out of line.

And Pete's point is valid: in public forums, it is *always* best to
double-check with the author before posting a personal message, no
matter how innocuous it may seem.
