I'm not sure who I should address this to, but I hope the
administrators of this LISTSERVER can respond. I also hope I have the
strong support of the CUSeeMe Consortium, as well.

CU-SEEME: Could you please UNSUBSCRIBE those members of this LISTSERVER
who through a lack of good judgement or responsibility, knowingly post
material offensive to the "group norms"???
Offensive material (for the purposes of this group) could be defined as
the inappropriate use of the term "broad" as used in "" 's
last Email.
My belief of this group is one of mutual respect, courtesy and
professionalism. I myself cannot stay subscribed to this LISTSERVER if
these people are not brought to your attention, and delt with accordingly.

COMMUNITY: I have come to "know" you all as described above. Through
your helpful and intelligent (Inet) conversations, I have been able to
partake in a very useful exchange of knowledge on an ever-expanding, new
info-technology platform. Forgive me if I feel so strongly about this topic.

SOLUTION(?): I propose that the CUSeeMe Consortium forward a copy of
these "offensive" messages to the CU-SeeMe LISTSERVER administrators, as
well as the offending party; outlining their concerns.
If the situation warrants (i.e.- hundreds of angry, offended people), the
offensive party should be notified of his/her transgressions with a copy
of their offensive message; followed be immediate UNSUBSCRIPTION! :<
Yeah, I know they could always re-subscribe through another internet
account. Who knows??? Maybe they will understandand will not make the
same mistake again???

If anyone has any input for me regarding this topic, could we correspond
via my private accounts listed below, please? I think I've tied up
enough bandwidth on this LISTSERVER, already ;)

Thank you for your time and your patience,

"THERE IS NO SANITY... Just organized CHAOS!!!"
