Censorship alive and well on frameusers


I expressed my dismay at the move to the dreaded usability-challenged 
mailman list manager in <

At the time, I did not realise that frameusers was already live on 
mailman.  When I followed up with a comment on my original post, it was 
censored.  Did I include a photocopy of my bum?  No.  Did I imply that 
George Bush was less than fit to rule the known universe?  No.  Did I 
suggest that child molestation was a victim of bad press?  No.

I just expressed my feelings about an archive interface that is less 
usable than, say, Yahoo! Groups.  You can read it at <
http://www.freeframers.org/archive/05/msg00707.html>, on a list manager 
only slightly more friendly than mailman.

Why didn't the moderators ask the list about a suitable replacement for 
Lyris.  There are heaps out there.  From this doomed attempt at 
censorship, one might imagine that they think the list is their personal 
property.  It's not -- the list exists and obtains its value from the 
presence and contributions of all its subscribers.

Hey, guys, read The Cluetrain Manifesto at <http://www.cluetrain.org/>. 
Censorship doesn't work any more.  And it should only be applied to 
serious cases, not because your noses might be out of joint.
