    No need for the ***'s ... Lorraine was not banned but she posted that
    she was. Interesting how someone could post if they were banned! ;-)
    Lorraine still posts on secnews btw.

    Antony Shen was not asked to post elsewhere, at least not by any of the
    Champs or Netscape. Antony did not participate in any personal attacks
    on any of the Champs but rather did go round and round with ChrisI, who
    by the way is not a Netscape Champ and at the time the Mozilla Champs
    hadn't been formed yet. Antony was and still is a respected member of
    the support community who, like others, has donated his time and efforts
    to make life a lot easier for the users out there with support
    questions, etc.

    If you want the true and factual stories, ask ME, the secnews admin.
    Everything else is conjecture and rumor and needs to be stopped. There
    is no point in bringing this up again.

    well here it is. One week later, and still nobody has
    contacted me regarding my complaint. These Spam Mooses send
    out Offensive and Threatening messages, you make a complaint
    about it and they don't even bother replying. I guess the
    Powers to Be and the Mozilla Spam Mooses don't think we
    [errr, rather the Community] deserve an explanation. Some
    Mozilla Community this is turning out to be. Is this the way
    they treat people within the Moz Community?: By sending out
    these offensive emails, and threating to remove ones
    postings, if you don't obey them and their rules?

    We purposely decided not to address your questions, because it is
    obvious that you only intended to get into a flamewar.

    this is disgusting! Its now over 3 weeks since I received
    the offensive and threatening message. And so far, no
    response. Some Community Support this is! Is this the way
    one is treated within these newsgroups. Yup! It sure is!
    The only excuse these Spam Mooses can give me for not
    replying is they don't want a flame war. I deserve an
    explaination, but all they can do is wimp out. Is this what
    the Mozilla Community is all about: Send out the offensive
    and threatening emails, but don't provide followup when
    being questioned. Is this the Spirit of this Mozilla
    Community? What a Shame! This should be an embarrassment
    towards the Community, and the so-called Chief Lizard
    Wrangler and her minions couldn't careless about this
    community and the way people are treated.
