Hi, Shelley-

Shelley, it is my job to help keep W3C lists a place where people feel 
they can work.  Negative emails undermine our work environment.

It seems you didn't understand my rationale.  I'm not concerned with 
just this incident.  I'm trying to prevent similar incidents in the 
future.  Please be more civil.  Such exchanges are not helpful.

If you want to exchange angry emails, do so so off-list, not on W3C 
email lists (even this one).  Also, it is a breach of etiquette to post 
private emails in public, especially in W3C space.  Please don't do that
