Well.... I will speak to Noels defense.
Yes, he is opinionated, and yes, he is stubborn... and very very
drastic in his expressions.
I have not been following this thread in any greater detail, since it
stopped being interresting a while back.

But he has on several occasions contributed his knowledge in
constructive ways... And if you only scratch lightly on the surface,
he is a very caring and kind person.
My views are doubtless coloured by the helping hand he has reached out
to me recently, when I most needed a kind word from a friend, but ...
Is it really OK to gang up on him like you do now?
To act out on the suggestion to evict him from the list is quite OK by
me, and indeed by him as well, Jules. Even talking about it could've
been OK. But I think you've come very close to a line here, almost ...
gloating ... over the act.

I do know (and have been know to agree vocally) that his language can
be more than what is acceptable. That is not my point.
I'm just saying we seem to have changed one (in my view minor) evil
for another (that I, with my background and "old luggage" find very
hard to accept... After all, it's bordering on mobbing).

I'm not saying that anyone else of the participants of the thread
should be "punished". Just that you all should remember that it is
people at the other end.

Respectfully yours
