Now here is the fun thing with email. It is up to the recipient to decide what to do with it - it is just like if you get a letter marked "Private and Confidential", if you decide to put it on the web, there isn't anything anyone can do about it - the letter belongs to the person who received it [1]. I know I've sent stuff to Chris and he's published it, but then again some he hasn't. I don't believe it is point scoring either, nor is it "freedom of the press".

Drobe is a news place with items of general interest and other such material. As the current situation with Querus is both news and of general interest, it has a place here. If the postings had appeared on csa.misc, I doubt there would be anywhere near as much "reduced noise" commentary. While some may complain at what Chris did (and again, I repeat that I'm not taking sides here), the situation and excuses coming from Finnybank hold almost as little water as the fake AU editor and excuses for lack of QC when Tau had it and in this instance, Chris, as a contributor, had as much right as you or me to publish our personal emails.

jc : if you want help getting things done and printed, email or phone me and we can get something going, but for goodness sakes, stop sticking your head in the sand; you'll end up with a well kicked ass!
