REDMAN: "WE HAD A SEMANTIC MISUNDERSTANDING"
Dear Mr. Smith,
We had a semantic misunderstanding. You said that I removed a
candidate's name from the binfo mailing list, which is not true. No
name was removed from the binfo packets that are being mailed to the
Delegates on a quarterly basis.
When I received that accusation from you, on top of the other
accusations that I have caused people to be fired, etc., all untrue,
I came to a non-professional judgment about the state of your health.
I did remove Mr. Sloan's name from the electronic distribution list of
binfos when he violated the rule regarding direct posts from
candidates. He told me he was unaware of the rule and promised not to
directly post again so I asked that he be reinstated.
I hope that clarifies matters.
