I was just wondering, will Joel tell us who it is that complained
to him about one of our posts if we ask? I think it would only be
This is very unfair since anybody that decides they don't like
you can start hasseling Joel about your posts. I doubt that Joel
reads Wire much, I think he just probably goes along with what's
posted to him. If people are complaing to Joel about somebody
on Wire, they should be willing to let Joel tell the person who
it is instead tattling on people behind their backs.
In fact, I think Joel shoud forward the complaints that were sent
along with any warning that's sent out. Nothing should be hidden.
