    I stand by my original post - it's really not fair to the rest of the group
    for a very small (but very vocal) minority to ruin things for the rest of
    the group. Been there, done that - and If they won't go away on their own
    then I'll have to resort to other means to filter out the "noise".
    And I really don't follow your logic about multiple interest groups - if
    someone isn't able to differentiate between them they really don't have any
    business posting on the Internet.
    I've tried to show support for you, both in e-mails and public postings on
    the list since I've been in the same situation as a group moderator, though
    I guess in this particular case that support apparently wasn't warranted.
