Right or wrong, you just wrote elsewhere
that you appreciated David Ullrich's

There is no question that the number
of professional mathematicians actively
participating on these newsgroups is
less than in the past. Shall that be
made one fewer by a public reprimand?

People have personalities. People sometimes
say things they later would prefer to have
not said. Some people find it easy to
apologize whereas others do not. Some
people do not see a need for apology
whereas others do.

I am not going to disagree with you
on the particulars here. I am just
going to ask if this is what you
really want to do?
