You guys in Paris don't miss a beat,  You are relentless in your attempt
to subvert and destroy GNU and destroy Richard Stallman.


I don't see how this can continue other than resulting in a complete BAN
from GNU of all the supporters of this rebellion.  Whether Richard find
it distasteful or not, I see no choice but to ban off of you, starting
with Ludovic Courtès <address@hidden>, and working through the entire
list, .Mark Wielaard, Andreas R. <address@hidden>, Carlos O'Donell
<address@hidden>, the whole group is just going to have to be
kicked out.

This is like getting a shot when your sick.  The sooner and fastest it
is don't the sooner this drama comes to a close.
