    Wolfgang, you wrote:
    "Now I wonder whether I was the one that he censored last December."

    No, Wolfgang, none of your posts were removed or affected in any way last December, but there was something weird going on with Google Groups that APPARENTLY gave you the impression that your posts were missing. That is part of the reason that I moved us off of Google Groups.

    And Wolfgang, you wrote:
    "I did not make any comparison between him and the Peoples Republic of China, though, so it might have been somebody else."

    Why sure you did, Wolfgang! Remember you sent off an angry email to a bunch of NavList members when some message that you said you had sent did not immediately appear? You didn't send that angry email to me, of course, but a couple of people forwarded me copies because they were very annoyed that you had done such a thing. In that email, you wrote: "I wonder why Frank is suddenly not able to respond. Rather reminds me of the practises of countries like China that are known for their liberal views of the internet."

    Yep. Those were your words. Remember now?

    You concluded:
    "And I cannot but note that Frank’s benign habit of sparing the list mails that appear offensive to him, shows a certain bias in favour of people "dear to his heart"."

    In the four (and a half) years that I have been managing NavList, I have suspended posting EXACTLY ONCE FOR ONE NAVLIST MEMBER --Douglas Denny. The other individual that I referred to was a different situation. I spun him around in circles as best I could until he tired out and wandered off since I knew his continued presence would be disastrous for NavList discussions. When I spoke of him as someone "near and dear" to George, you thought I meant you? No. I was being FACETIOUS with that reference. This individual is someone that George could not stand.
