The next time anyone dares to criticize me for being [whatever] on this 
esteemed List-- and, you know, sometimes WAI employees actually *call me 
on the phone* about that-- I would, for the record, point out that Steven 
Dale got to call me names twice in the last day, with impunity.

If I'm not mistaken, such actions violate the requirement to "Treat other 
list members with respect" <http://www.w3.org/WAI/IG/>. At least the 
parties involved aren't forwarding my private E-mail to the list.

The next time WCAG WG gets up in arms because I state that their proposals
are crap, please keep this message in mind. You all seem much happier to
let people defame my by name than to let me state and explain why your
proposals stink. Everywhere else, WCAG WG prizes being nicey-nicey over 
being accurate (to the extent that members can reiterate untruths for 
months as long as they're every so cheerful about it), but here's 
somebody who's being outright nasty and it's simply accepted.

I always knew I was right all along that there are Approved Persons on the
-IG and -GL lists, plus another group we could call "everybody else."
There's increasing evidence I'm in a category of one.

Don't suppose there's something wrong here?
