     That is of course why you are still on the list.

     Both of your conclusions are wrong anyhow.

     Your comments about libel are an effort to stop communication.
They possibly can even be contrued as an effort to INCITE Bill Sklar
to take such action which would be a direct violation of

     Your comments might also possibly be construed as an effort to close down
ADORE-L which would also be a violation of the HIGH TREASON apl.

     I am right now in the process of getting the data about Bill
Sklar from the horses mouth.  If it turns out I jumped my guns
he will get a public apology.

     It would seem that people are bent on making it dangerous
to live on ADORE-L.  Thus I am going to have to institute a policy
change to make it sure it survives, for those of you who have
a serious interest in its existance.

     One is reminded of Noah and the Flood.
