To say that discursive responsibility is censorship is in itself a
pro-censorship assertion. I believe that Dr Marson was raising a question
about the relevance of certain contributions on the list, but Claire
Dinsmore obviously thinks that she shouldn't be allowed to. The value of a
discussion forum like this comes and goes with the seriosness of the
questions raised. Pleas, try to keep a certain level ...
