If you feel I was too harsh, that's fine, I'll give you that, but I have
to be exceptionally clear on this point, the SVLUG mailing list is not a
job list and never will be while I'm responsible for it, and
this was your second mistake in this arena. And while I personally
couldn't care and simply hit delete when this sort of thing happens, when
I got email from the other officers of the group asking me to act and in
fact I myself felt it was time to act to curb such practices.
The membership of the SVLUG has no desire to have it's personal
private discussion area be looked upon as hall kinion, and you were made
an example of. And since I dislike dealing with kind of problem, I made
the flip remark that people shouldn't work for CNET as they can't respect
the rules of a simple mailing list. That was perhaps my mistake.
