No mind reading involved. I'm only repeating what has been stated on that list by the admin (past and present) on any number of occasions. And the following is directly quoted from the "About Techwr-l" page of the Techwr-l.com website: "TECHWR-L is an unmoderated discussion forum for technical communication topics."
So I guess we just have to tkae your word for it that they are liars...

I'm sure you're right Fred; I just didn't realize you were so tight with the admins that you could read their minds.
Those messages I received that indicated otherwise were undoubedly clever forgeries. Silly me.
