Thank you, Raj, but we feel everyone has to be responsible for his
own actions. An apology from you is not at all called for. Thank you for
understanding our feelings.

We dont want ragh00 to be banned completly -just a reassurance from him
that he will mind his language in future will be enough for us. Rest is
upto the list admn to decide and yes, introspection is needed as to why
such an incident happened at all.

But the above also does not mean that I am not doing what has to be done.

Swati and Tarique

P.S. Yes, I had promised am taking this offlist but, Raj's mail has really
touched me.
