I have to admit to being sceptical of Mr Groth's motives in posting this.
He is new to Leps-l but is very familiar to me from DPLEX-L
as a known anti-conservationist.
The message could easily have been sent to the list administrator privately.
Roger's email address has been removed from the messages. If others
had it a quiet word of advice might be all that is needed.
Please contact me privately Roger. I don't think you have got the hang
of how this works.
It looks suspiciously like an attempt just to discredit the opposition.

No. He may not be on the list at all.

Posting personal email to lists without consent is considered to be a gross
breach of netiquette. OK we have a guy who cares passionately for butterflies
I can understand that. He then sees someone dissembling. He gets angry.
Wrong reaction, but he is human. Provoking him by posting his private
messages to the net is not going to help.
This is the public internet. Free Speech reigns. Isn't it amazing how
those who are so passionate in their abhorence of regulation suddenly
become proponents when they are involved personally.
If you post here you risk getting flamed personally. You will also
get spam. There is no cure for that either.
Roger shouldn't be posting his messages to you, but then you should
not be posting them to the list. Two wrongs do not make a right.
