It's not possible for those of us not on -private to figure out what's
going on, really, but is it possible that it wasn't made public in an
effort to protect Andrew's privacy? Were I a listmaster, that would've
been one of my considerations, regardless of what he'd done to justify
the ban. I think it's potentially important that the rest of us know
some disciplinary action has been taken, but I can't say that it's
relevant to, say, his future employers.
