Ironically, he did so in a relatively small forum without public archive (iirc)

subscribe and a public archive that will end up on Google.

So, if you only want to document bad behaviour in connection to Brainfood,
you did well, Google will catch up on this.

If you just wanted to get the issues "straight" you seem to have failed
and created an interesting connection on search engines.

See, there are reasons private mailing lists exist, and they don't
violate the DFSG.
