Piete, I would have thought (and would like to believe) that you (of all people) would recognise the basic absolute human-right to freedom of speech. Distressingly, or so it would seem, you appear unprepared to grant me this basic right (albeit that my emails will attract unwelcome attention, and cause much political weight to be brought to bear upon my head come Monday morning). RFC 822 (as extensively documented by the late Dr. Jonathan Postel founder of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) specifies the "Bcc:", also widely known as the "Blind Carbon Copy" header, intended to allow the (E)SMTP mail sender to specify priviledged recipients to whom an email may be sent, with a view to keeping the nature of such primary recipients of a message unaware of the extent of the distribution of the message, for whatever, tactful, political, or otherwise reasons unknown. If I am required to resign because I express unpopular, or politically non-expedient views, by whatever means, then so be it. I feel that it would not be unreasonable to hope that the wider Internet community would sympathise with me, and permit me to earn my living through my desire to further the goals of that community, by working with whoever may feel minded to give me house room. Martin Cooper Taking much care to express my views, as ever, for myself...
