Dear Don,

My personal notes to you, of course, do not contain anything
offensive. It is rather a matter of principle: one ought to distinguish
between the private and the public. If one wishes to make a private message
public, one is expected to secure a consent from its author. Wouldn't you
agree? I wonder what other Forum participants think about this principle.


P.S. I am sending it to you as a personal note, but you have my permission
to run it on the Forum
