I'm writing as past NAFEX president and board member for several years, but
not officially in any capacity.
NAFEX does not own this website. It is being graciously donated. The list
moderator and officers have taken the position of giving wide discretion to
subjects, however occasionally certain subjects or persons are blocked. Even
I was once blocked for a monent. There are too many messages sent for anyone
to act as gate keeper and read each message before allowing it to pass.
Contributors for the most part have always been civil. Well....... except the
Fluffy One who gets close to the edge sometimes. (Love you Fluffy)
NAFEX doesn't have the finances to pay a gate keeper for the time that
would be required. But if someone writes using profanity, threatens others or is
abusive to others, he will be blocked quickly when attention is brought to
the list moderator.
The global warming topic has been discussed many times, without mutual
agreement as to the cause or causes. It isn't a fruit topic, but affects fruit
growing in all areas. This has been a topic discussed since Thomas
Jefferson's time. I've been known to throw in my 2 cents worth.
But yes, in my opinion Fluff should have refrained from submitting the
political jab and should have been ignored drawing no rebuttal which there was.
