Admittedly I am not a big fan of censorship but after reading Mr.
Dixon's last posts, and doing a search on his term "HNIC", I have
decided to ban him from the list.

I reviewed all of Mike's previous postings to the list and find that
he has added very little, if anything, to the discussion of
Amphicars. He has, on repeated occassions, flung offensive epithets
at various members, ethnic groups, etc.. It is fortunate for him
that he has his own business because this type of e-mail would result
in termination at many large corporations.

Mr. Dixon fails to realize that his freedom ends at the tip of the
next person's nose. Likewise, this is not a public forumn, it is my
list and thus I maintain ultimate editorial priveledge and membership
approval. I am sure there is a bigots list out there in Yahoo Groups
and Mr. Dixon might likely be much happier there.

Generally the list has been self-moderating. When people go "off
topic" the members usually point that out, an apology may or may not
be issued, but the activity has always ceased. Mr. Dixon has been
chided multiple times but his reaction has been one of continued
defiance. The attacks have now been aimed at individual members and
I simply can not allow it to go on.

Oh yes, while I am wearing my censor's hat I have also banned
jans_store which I believe subscribed for no other reaon than posting
SPAM.

Mike Israel- You have made the right choice. I don't believe that we
are that type of crowd. I grew up (well, sort of) with a father who
could have been Mr. Dixon's brother. I heard all those terms too
often and I have decided to break the chain at my generation.

For those who do not know what HNIC is it means "Head N*gg*r In
charge" I heard that crap all my life along with many others. It took
a lot of self determination to hold my comments, and then after the
2nd comment ... GRRRR!

Greg - Apology accepted, but not neccessary what so ever. I took no
offense to anything you said. You have every right to comment on what
you feel and I defend you right to do so. Yes, this is America and I
love her! I am sure those across the pond would say the same of thier
homeland.

Mr. Dixon fails to realize that his freedom ends at the tip of the
next person's nose. I am sure there is a bigots list out there in Yahoo Groups
and Mr. Dixon might likely be much happier there.

Hi All.

Mike, I just wanted to thank you.

I'm sure Mr. Dixon will be happy @ bigots.com. I don't think he owns an Amphicar, if he does it's the unluckiest Amphi in the world.

In the circus we would call him a "Rang."

So the Rang is gone and we can start to post again.

Thank you so much, Tommy in Tampa
