The problem with killfiles is, of course, that when the system quotes
messages, they get repeated.

I've now had several email conversations with the moderators, who have
given me their assurances that this will be fixed henceforth, and asked
that I give the process another shot. In the spirit of cooperation,
I'm willing to give them the opportunity to demonstrate that. So we'll
take this one step at a time, and I will give them, and the process,
the benefit of the doubt.

My apologies for the fray, but sometimes a raised public voice is the
only way to get done what private inertia obstructs. That being done,
let's see if we can make this work.

So: onward.
