Re: [GreenYes] Our response to hate
It is not necessary to tolerate hate speech on this listserve.  Just boot 
the offenders.  Look at the Terms of Service of nearly every Internet 
Service Provider (ISP).  Nearly all of them provide for immediate 
termination of service to anyone engaging in abusive, defamatory, or 
racially/ethnically offensive speech.  I would be surprised if the host 
for earthsystems.org did not have such a policy in place.  Most likely 
the offender's ISP also has such a policy, and a report filed with that 
ISP postmaster is usually all it takes to get such a scoundrel kicked off 
his/her service within 24 hours.
