And look who\'s talking *now*...
\"Ildiko\" - the VERY ONE person who *borrowed* all the TCR (payments practice list) ACCESS-RESTRICTED ARCHIVES on Yahoo, in order to post them *OPENLY* and *PUBLICLY* (not even password restricted) on her personal website last year.... for anyone on the Internet to see.
And this, WITHOUT asking anyone\'s permission (of course) to use all the Email messages (including headers/names/signatures etc...that all the members had contributed.
I, as well as many other list members threatened you back then with lawsuits for making *public* our comments which were made in the PRIVACY of a restricted-access list...
As for Werner, he received unfair treatment and was unnecessarily removed from Proz. I do not recall that you were personally involved in this whole affair, so why are you meddling in this now???
The facts stated on the translation_proz list are true (and proven online on Proz).
We also suggest ideas to improve the Proz website (and other sites) on a regular basis.
Those suggestions have also been posted on Proz by many members of the list, and this, on MANY occasions - but they often get totally ignored or are shut-down.
Telling the truth is not libel....And may I remind you that posting personal attacks on individuals to the forums is against ProZ rules.
So when will you be expelled from Proz for this \"faux pas\", I wonder???

Probably, as you are unaware of the facts of the case, you may kindly say what you did about the \'wrong\' expulsion of the former member. And so, your ignorance in the said matter may be forgiven.
If you want me to write to you in private about the reasons why a certain member was expelled, you could let me know and I might be able to enlighten you further.
The matter can be treated as closed at this juncture.

I know *very well* why he was expelled.
Henry wrote to me PRIVATELY via Email to offer me his side of the story a few weeks ago.
I genuinely accepted to hear it (and to keep it to myself on a confidential basis), but so far (it\'s been a few weeks now), Henry has not replied back with his so-called *side* of the story.
Based on what I have seen (both in public and privately from *many* sources btw), and based on the number of years that I know the particular member who has been banned...
I do not agree with the decision taken by Proz in this matter.
Am I entitled to my opinion or will I get shut-down or privately threatened for it?
Thank you, Angela, for your reasonable and balanced input on the forum.
However, any decision that may or may not have been taken by the moderators was based on \"distorted\" facts.
The other day, we got to see Jason\'s original e-mail, explaining, in an infantile manner, the reasons for that member\'s removal.
Henry never told you guys the full truth. Instead, he chose to feed you stories of things that went down over 2-3 years ago (things which the member in question acknowledged and apologized for - publicly - a long time ago). Those apologies were accepted (also publicly), and so Henry was clearly in the wrong to dig up old stuff to sway your decision (*if* that\'s what he did).
But even that \"old stuff\" was not that \"nasty\" when looked at in perspective - that member (and others) had to defend themselves *repeatedly* against personal attacks and insults.
In fact, they got into trouble for doing so... (self-defense is now \"illegal\"???).

I like and respect you. And I am indebted to you for your kind introduction.
However, as regards Werner Patels, you have heard, and are spreading, incorrect information.
When the moderators voted not to accept Werner\'s request for reinstatement, I merely forwarded his request to them. I did not add so much as a word of my own opinion.
That is all I will say on this issue, which I now consider to be a legal matter. You are welcome to continue using this site, I have nothing against you. But if you are waiting for further explanation from me, I am afraid it will not be forthcoming. Sorry.
I am closing the thread.
