Let's be clear: you killfiled a thread critical of the foundation,  
that was ongoing and was at present constructive and unoffensive (with  
any nastiness long since past), that was being responded to by  
Florence,  and was relevant to this list. This is the kind of heavy- 
handed moderation that brings up allegations of censorship.  Please be  
more hands-off and not step in with moderation when there is no problem.
