Jony, I have no intention of granting to Mr Grossman any exclusive 
copyright over the words which I wrote, and posted to several lists. 
There is nothing in the rules of the Hebrew Computing group which states 
that I am granting to the group exclusive copyright to material which I 
have written and of which I am therefore the copyright holder.

I note that the Hebrew Computing list is fully moderated. (My posting 
has not yet appeared on this list probably because Mr Grossman is 
observing the Jewish holidays.) Therefore, anything which I post to 
unmoderated lists as well as to his list has already been published 
widely by me without Mr Grossman's copyright notice before he attaches 
his copyright notice. This makes it clear that his copyright claim is 
null and void.

I may be breaching the conditions of the Hebrew Computing list by 
posting material which cannot carry this copyright. If so, I apologise 
to Mr Grossman, and of course give him permission to reject my posting.
