The more relevant part of what I said was:

In other words: If Spike were away, he might be unable to let any of 
Lee's posts through until he returned. That didn't mean that he had 
been expelled from the list, if that means permanently removed. I'm 
assuming Lee Corbin is back, since I received a post from him to the 
List on the morning of the 28th. I'll email him now to ask. If he's 
not, perhaps he can wait until we have a new moderator sorted out.
