Common Courtesy states that one should also mention personal
communications, even if completely ignored by the person(s) in question.

Even though Anand Kumria mention recent personal conflict with Martin,
this still does nothing in the way of informing us of Netiquette being
properly maintained. It is also not an excuse to cut this part out of
being done period, nor of mentioning it being either way.

Personally, I would have mentioned the dates and times of the
e-mails/phone calls/snail-mails in the preface of the d-d-a list mail.

But, then again, I am not (by far) an average person. I guess I should
*FORCE* myself to have less than respectable expectations for these type
of attacks^Wcriticisms.

And, BTW, How do I know, officially, I don't know if he did or didn't
try to contact Martin. And Yes, I read your e-mail, as well Andrew.

And I too, have been guilty of doing the same thing and have also been
admonished. Why stop now, trying to make d-d or d-d-a more civil, it
would be hard to make less civil, on average.

(of course you know I don't read yours or Martin's e-mail, as this is
"tongue in cheek" mode and is a forever written in stone as a sysadmin
commandment, "thou shalt not read thine users e-mail")
