Dear list subscribers, In my volunteer capacity as list-admin, I write to let you know that subscriber Gerard Meijssen has been placed on indefinite moderation after making toxic comments to another subscriber, and failing to apologize for them after it was pointed out to him. Gerard had been warned before about his aggressive conduct on this mailing list.
As most of you know, being placed in moderation still allows moderated people to contribute to the list, but their posts don't go straight to all subscribers, but wait for an admin to review and release them, or reject them. They are a compromise between wanting to be inclusive of people who are good faith volunteers but who sometimes find it difficult to maintain civil discourse on the one hand, and protecting the list's other subscribers from unacceptable discourse on the other hand. However, Gerard chose to unsubscribe himself from the list. We want to be clear that the moderation remains in force, should he choose to re-subscribe in the future.
