Just in case anyone's interested, I've now
put the "Relativity ICS" book online as a
(chargeable) PDF ebook.

Nobody been buying your crap book so you
came back here to spam it?

Now, remind me again ... who's accusing

junk posts?

Perhaps English is not your first language. You stand accused of
violating the charter of this newsgroup, by posting a commercial
message.

That you wish to distract the conversation to some strawman argument,
about "validity" or "appropriateness" is a separate issue. Frankly,
Mr. Gisse currently contributes more on-topic content than you do "per
month".

By the way, your abuse of charter has been reported.

David A. Smith


Hm. That's odd.
Which version of the charter are you looking at, David?

================

I'vee done some checking:

http://faqs.cs.uu.nl/na-dir/physics-faq/relativity-welcome.html
(20 Jun 2001),

Also, Baez's site at
http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics/Administrivia/newsgroups.html

directs visitors to
"There is an archive copy of the charter for this group." ::
:: http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics/Administrivia/Charters/relativity.txt

, which isn't dated. There's also

http://www.physics.adelaide.edu.au/~dkoks/Faq/Administrivia/newsgroups.html
which points to
http://www.physics.adelaide.edu.au/~dkoks/Faq/Administrivia/Charters/relativity.txt


Going in by the "Google Groups" interface, and searching for the
charter gives the most recent candidate for most relevant post as
http://groups.google.co.uk/group/sci.physics.relativity/browse_thread/thread/793dedd752de36e3/eb6c7a0fcaf95a93?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=sci.physics.relativity+charter#eb6c7a0fcaf95a93


:: "What is the sci.physics.relativity charter? Right here: [...]"
which redirects, indirectly, to
http://groups.google.com/group/sci.answers/msg/5753b02f7c811fcb


=================

When I checked, none of these online copies of the charter contained
the clause that you say you've reported me for violating, so ...

... could you post a URL to the version that you were using for
reference when you filed the report, so that I can look it over?

Thanks



Oh, and I'll also probably need the contact details of the person or
organisation that you reported me to.
