LepSoc *Membership Committee* includes TK.....

In your zeal to extend TK's punishment, and to damn anyone who believes 
it is possible for a person to change his behavior, you have done 
something that is also highly inappropriate. You must know that the 
file letter you broadcast over Leps-l was intended only as a draft for 
discussion at the Lep Soc executive meeting.

We did discuss and approve of Gary's proposal to reach out to other lep 
groups, with the proviso that the letter be revised somewhat. However, 
Gary has been away doing field work and committee work (endangered 
species rankings for Canadian government, which you presumably would 
consider worth putting time into) and remains unable to respond to your 
emails or postings.

I certainly hope that your continued focus on TK's behavior of 15 years 
ago has not led you to believe that the end justifies the means (i.e. 
it is okay for you to unethically broadcast draft files like this). 
That would be too rich in irony.
