Follow instructions in [6730].

This is true in no sense.  To begin with, I am not the only person
technically  who can subscribe someone to the list. More significantly, we
-- as I  repeatedly emphasize -- are a collaborative project.  As a
after hearing from the (off-list) recommendations of listmembers, decisions
are made even where I disagree with the feedback that I receive, e.g. in
the case of  recommendations for new members.

It is unfortunate that Paul Z in [6713] and now in [6738] did not follow
Alan's request in [6704] and my request in [6707].  I believe *you* have
hurt the list by your decision to discuss the matter further on-list.

I have learned much from Paul's posts and I think his presence will be
greatly missed. But, OPE-L will not be held hostage to the whims of a
conspiratorial clique.  We are not "dying" despite their best hopes and
pre-planned orchestrated walkout: we will continue!

In solidarity, Jerry
