Re: [GreenYes] Paul Cato's messages
I am getting tired of Dr. Paul Cato individually responding to comments 
made on the GreenYes listserve and trying to intimidate people from not 
participating in the dialog that this listserve was established 
for.  GreenYes was established by Steve Suess in 1996-97 when he was tired 
of diatribes at the time being made against the environment.  He wanted 
those who are committed to preserving the environment to have a vehicle to 
express their views, and to work together to improve the environment.

I know that there are some who monitor this listserve to understand the 
environmental perspective, and that is part of having an open 
system.  However, I call upon the GreenYes list administrators to develop a 
policy that will block access to anyone who is clearly using the list to 
undermine the listserve's established purposes.  I nominate Dr. Paul Cato 
to be evaluated in that regard.
