Sure it is 'understandable' if you subscribe to the theory that people
should be corrected in a public forum.

In the future, if someone violates posting polices let's not stand on the
in front of the entire list and thump our fist on the bible of techwr-l
posting guidelines.

A simple, cordial, and private message would have sufficed, I think.
Maybe if attached
to it was the guidelines (in case, just maybe, the person really never
saw them) and
a simple note welcoming the poster to the group, we could foster an
atmosphere of
friendliness and team spirit. After all, we all share the same
profession and could
learn a lot from this list.
