It appears that the list administrator is practicing his power of
censorship--and violating my right to confront witnesses against me and my
right of free speech. The below was returned to me (again, apparently) as
"not deliverable"; presumably, it is seen as inflamatory somehow--but there
was no explanation as to exactly how this post was in violation of our
(mine and the list's) contractual agreement to exchange services...the
list's obligation to provide a public forum in exchange for my time and the
written material I share for public entertainment. Nor, was there
due-process--a public notice that censorship would take place, equal
censorship for everyone in the forum, previous attempts to resolve any
conflicts in this area, etc. So, I must conclude that said "administration"
is very close to legal culpablilty. I also assume that this action is
indication that the freedom of expression which this list implies is
fraudulant and that it's policing of its members will most likely lead to
its eventual self-destruction should it choose to continue these practices.
