      Dave,

      I was not aware of this history. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I
      acted recklessly in assuming the three lists that were terminated were of
      the same caliber as the two presently being threatened, of whose contents I
      could peruse.

      Gratefully, the wording in the petition is nebulous enough that the
      antecedent of "these lists" can refer to the two just listed that Myron
      Evans was demanding be shut down.

      I've posted your comment, along with a bunch of others on the subject
      (including a nasty email from Myron) at:

      All,

      The reason 'nut_meg' was shut down was because it was only devoted to
      slandering Tom Bearden and
      anyone associated with him. 'tombearden' was actually a porn list, so it
      may or may have been
      shut down by Evans (it may just have been shut down for TOS violations). I
      don't know the story
      behind the others.

      Myron Evans is a friend and associate of Bearden who has collaborated with
      him on several
      papers. I personally wished he had just waited until they had put something
      really nasty into
      the public record and then sued the pants off them, but I only got called a
      crackpot and a Nazi
      on that list for being a moderator on meg_builders - Evans actually got his
      professional
      reputation attacked. I don't blame him for reacting hastily. Anyway, I
      really don't think we
      have to worry about any list that doesn't break the laws being shut down.
      Still got that free
      speech thing in the constitution, y'know.

      In case anyone is interested in the level, quality and fairness of
      discussion amongst those who
      frequented those groups (Eric Krieg is one) they are now on sci.skeptic and
      sci.physics under
      the title 'nonsense physics of Tom Bearden'.

      Best,

      Dave Narby
