Today, I received the following E-mail from "super moderator" Ilias,
with the Subject "Mozilla message removal eligibility notification":

I see three things wrong with this:

* Ilias fails to indicate in which newsgroup my offense occurred.

* Ilias fails to indicate what posting of mine offended.

* Most important, Ilias claims that I have not set a followup to
mozilla.general in three years. WRONG! My archives of newsgroup
messages that I post go back only to March 2016. In the past 16 months
-- much less than three years -- I set Followup-To for mozilla.general
at least three times, not counting this message.

By the way, when I do set Followup-To, I aways indicate that in the body
of my message.

Followup-To:

President Trump now denies there are any tapes that
recorded his conversations with ex-FBI Director Comey.
Between when Trump hinted there might be such tapes
and his denial, there was sufficient time to destroy
any tapes.
