     As I have already posted that I can see who is in conceal mode
and who isn't from the get command, the list members already
know I know what is going on, and they know I know that they know.

     As to trying to mislead them into believing something that
is not true, I was merely trying to show them that your behavior is
open even to them up to a point.  I am teaching them that even
if I am constrained from revealing everything, they can draw
their own conclusions.  I am educating them about list mechanics.

     However since they do not have complete access to the data
I have, their conclusions must include possibilities that I could
rule out, but they cant.  Such a conclusion as that you had possibly
signed on under a false name would be one of them.  From their
point of view it could be a distinct possibility.

     From my point of view, I can see what really happened but was
not allowed to say.

     Bill, do you think I have some dishonest intention towards you?
Am I trying to accomplish some ulterior motive with you that I have
not clearly stated?

     Do you think I KNOW that you are innocent of all charges and
suspicions and are merely having a good or cruel time at
your expense?

     Am I KNOWINGLY LYING about something, Bill?
