I'm confused by the allegation of Alain Dubois that Taxacom "practices
censorship".

Taxacom does NOT monitor incoming postings. Postings go directly to the
Taxacom list and are automatically circulated to the subscribers.

It is certainly possible that an email intended for posting to Taxacom was
mis-addressed and therefore did not end up becoming auto-posted to Taxacom.
But that is not an act of "censorship" by Taxacom.

Please send me --offline, to my personal email address-- copies, if you
saved them, of the two full emails --including all the email header lines--
to which you refer that were "not forwarded to the forum".
