Please do not complain to Marco's postmaster, and do not flame Marco. The
offending words were almost certainly written to Hawkins in a private
e-mail. Two reasons for believing this: first, Marco's words never
appeared through the mailing list until quoted by Hawkins; second, note
the To: header is addressed to ADruidson. This is the userid which
Hawkins (if that is his real name) uses in private e-mail. I would appear
that Marco was replying to a private e-mail to him by Hawkins/Druidson,
and the latter saw fit to post it to the group.
As far as the words used by Marco are concerned, they were presumably
intended to be used at a level to which Hawkins/Druidson is accustomed,
and were not intended as racial slurs in their own right.
If anyone wishes to complain, this should be done to the
postmaster/sysadmin of CompuServe, who let Hawkins/Druidson loose on the
net in the first place.
Finally, let's take the fuel away from this thread by not responding any
further to Hawkins's trolling, this thread has *WAY* outlived its
usefulness. (Yes, I have heard the saying about people in glass
Thought for the day: If you see a light at the end of the tunnel,
it is probably a train coming your way.
