[Taxacom] panbiogeography

In this case I had confused a public emailing (to the list) with a
'private' one sent in relation to a list. In the past some people forget
to 'reply all' and so have no problem with a response sent back to the
list. So I now made it clear that I did not want to receive private
complaints, but I got one nevertheless (and it was quite sarcastic). I'm
actually ok with receiving off list responses that are of a collegial
nature, but naturally not those that are not. To my mind it is only
polite for people responding off-list to a list discussion to say that
they intend their response to be private. In some cases people make this
explicit  and there is no problem.

My apologies to John in this specific case; I conflated two messages and
assumed that Michael's email was sent to John privately. The principle
still holds, however, and should any list member post a private
communication, the address I provided may be of use.
