It is the policy of SCREEN-L *not* to post personal attacks and certainly
calling someone paranoid and racist qualifies as such.  I worried that this
attack may have slipped through our moderating system while I was handing
the reins over to Clint Yoby, because I did not recall seeing it
previously.  And so I checked through the SCREEN-L archive (see below for
instructions on how you may do the same) to see if I could find it.
As far as I can tell, such a message did not appear on SCREEN-L.  I think
what may have happened is that someone may have sent a *personal* message
to Simone and made those accusations.
Sometimes our vigilance slips, but we SCREEN-L moderators will continue to
try to keep the conversation here civil and engaging and spam-free!
P.S.  To search SCREEN-L's archive, there are two methods:
1.  Point your Web browser to:
where the messages are gathered into weekly bundles.
2.  E-mail [log in to unmask] and in the message use the following
format to search for a specific word.  In the fourth line, replace
"SearchWord" with the word you want to search for and modify the dates as
necessary.  If you want ALL the posts during a certain time period, replace
"SearchWord" with an asterisk (*).
