Bob,

When I joined this list I was sent instructions that included List Etiquette
rules.  Rule Number 1 includes the sentence "Political discussions are not
allowed."

To me, your 9/25 post about a negative partisan political web site and your
accompanying comments was a political discussion.  I think you are off base
in asking Leslie "to let it pass",  you should not have posted that message.
Perhaps you should re-read the List Etiquette rules.
