       If you are not on the Northern List, someone posted something very
inflammatory and harmful to the list.  Something that is almost certainly
going to cause damage.  The decision was made to moderate the list for now to
try and prevent further damage.  The ideal is indeed being twisted but by
those who would use these lists to hurt others.  I think that it is right and
proper that those who have the power to do so try and prevent these forums
from being misused.
       As one who administers two lists on the kingdom server I can tell you
that there are guidelines set for what is and is not approbate for those
lists.  When those guidelines are not being observed it is the responsibility
of the list administrator to act.  The kingdom owns these lists and provides
them as a service to the populace.  They have every right, and in my opinion
a responsibility, to set standards for their use.  They have shown no
tendency to abuse this power.   If this had happened on one of my lists I
would have taken action.
