In reply to Lou's request to Dr. Hsiung for expungment-388469, posted by Lou Pilder on September 11, 2004, at 13:48:33
I have asked you to expunge the posts that are involved in the poem posted here in question. I am asking you to do that because I feel that it [has the potential to arrouse antisemitic feelings], not for any other reason including anyone's intent to do so.
The administration board is for reviewing requests like mine and I consider it my privilege and anyone else's to ask for posts to be reviewed and to request administrative action if necessarry. I have not asked here for admonishmernt to the poster, but only that the post be deleted, for I consider posts that have the potential to arrouse antisemitic feelings or anti- any- other- people feelings to be an unsound mental-health practice if they are allowed to be posted.
I have objected to your "do not post to me" policy at its conception because I believe that it can stigmatize a poster that it is posted about.
I feel that I have done nothing other than ask for clarification and asking for clarification is something that I feel is a very sound mental-health practice because it gives the poster that is being requested to clarify what is in their post an opportunity to enrichen the discussion and allow others to have more infomation in order to reply to their post with more infomation.
