Maybe some other list members have written to fill you in on this troll
business. He was posting obnoxious and sometimes very profane messages
under established list members' names for a while, and we think Getty
has gotten rid of him. We've agreed not to acknowledge him anymore,
even if he manages to come back under another name or one of our
names. We're going to ignore him completely. If you see a really
bizarre, out-of-character message from a member, assume it's
He-who-must-not-be-named and ignore it.
It was an emotionally wrenching week when he was posting and we'd really
not relive it. Please don't respond to anything regarding Darren,
Jacqueline, or Jim Corrigan, or anything that is obscene.
