Do I need to spell it out? Your accusation of censorship implies
malevolence on the part of somebody who can manipulate the list server --
that means somebody at USACERL, doesn't it? If it is official CERL policy
to censor certain messages, then I want to know about it. If it is not
official policy, then I assume that CERL management will want to
investigate your accusation. Don't you? The reason for doing so,
obviously, is to help prevent such censorship from happening in the
future. If all this doesn't interest, then I don't understand why you made
the public accusation of censorship in the first place.

I have a life too, and most of it is related to the Internet. I don't
think you can let public accusations stand unless you can prove them.
