Is it a normal occurrence for a rootsweb list administrator, to forward a list member's post to a 3rd party, then subscribe the 3rd party, long enough for him to rebut the post (but slandering the person, in the process), unsub
the 3rd party after the note and then unsub the list member, as well??<<<<
