Agreed, I suspect that most people who are operating out of band will  
be embarrassed by it, and avoid doing it again. Perhaps the out of  
band issue might be better handled under sloppy practices as opposed  
to ethics.

Elmering is badly needed.

That is egregious stuff there. I wonder why the authorities in VE-land  
won't put a stop to it?

Some times I think there is a contrary law to the universe where  
justice is doled out at such a slow speed that it takes all the  
satisfaction out of achieving it?
