I thank Jake for his measured response to Richard's questions. His
optimistic tone bodes well for the future of APG.
There were things in my original post that I hoped were hypothetical, but
turn out to be true. Likewise, I got the responsible party in the Chapter
member suspension wrong - it was not an EC decision. The chronic bylaws
delay was not caused by logo-fascination, although it may have contributed.
There are times when pulling email is warranted, IMO. A valid example would
be something not covered by free speech principles.
There are times when pulling an article is warranted, IMO. A valid example
would be plagiarism or something that would bring liability charges against
the publisher, as Jeff mentions in the Forum.
There are times when removing a speaker is warranted, IMO. A valid example
would be pornographic content victimizing children.
We do not need specifics to discuss the principles. We do need the
participation of our EC and Board, and I thank those who have stepped
forward to guide the conversation.
