With apologies to Lisa, if she regards this as a private mail,
(it looks deliberately very non-private to me)
but I am not prepared myself to go another round with Jerry in
the co-mod group alone without the list knowing about it.
Or worse, wait on tenterhooks for 24 hours and then face the
possibility of another 30-40 posts copied to half a dozen people
each, another 200 communications.
This is coercion.
The attempts to insinuate public matters into private posts
and then tangle people up in the details,
I find very insidious.
If he has a personal mail to send to
Lisa, why copy it to other co-mods, and then tell them not
to respond? Let him correspond privately with any co-mod whom
he wishes to split from the rest, it they wish to receive
such private communications. I feel manipulated by this whole way of
proceding, as illustrated in this post.
So I am forwarding it to the list.
As far as I am concerned, Jerry can decide how to win friends and influence
people to his position, on the list.
I see no need for any reply except what the other 330 odd list members
may wish to comment on if they really think it is worth it.

Within hours after I agree, temporarily, to a 24-hour policy I get *this*
from Chris and another absurd avoidance of the issues from Gary on-list.
I will keep my word _for your benefit alone_. If, after 24 hours, I do
not see an attempt by the co-mods _on the list_ to address the *issues*,
such as the distortions by Louis and Gary and Louis's heavy-handedness,
I will be forced to: a) respond; b) re-consider the 24-hour policy.
I am totally fed-up! I have seen *no* effort at compromise coming from
anyone but me.
ps to other co-mods: do *not* respond to this message to me.
