Bernie, Yong, Michael,
We can’t stop anyone from trolling off-list, but we can throw them off the list for breaking the rules. If you forward attack messages we will try to deal with them as appropriate. We knew there had been trolls in the past but no reports lately so we thought it had died down. Apparently not.
Thank you for sticking with the list in spite of the trolls. What I fear is other people may be intimidated and stop participating or leave the list completely and we will never know about it.. I don’t know how to prevent that except by trying to exclude the ill-willed from subscribing. But we need reports.
