Yes I did and I concede you are a honorable man.

After reading Lee's often wrong but always interesting and intelligent
comments for 13 years I figured list members deserved to know why we don't
hear from him anymore. It's not because he lost interest, it's because he's
been expelled. Do you deny that information could be of some interest to
long time members of this list?

But it's your list not mine and I certainly believe in private property, so
you have every right in the world to expel him, and me too if the mood
strikes you. It's just that I personally don't think expelling people who
aren't terminally stupid or boring is a very good way to get at the truth.
But as I say it's your list not mine.
