Who knows? A while back I posted a single brief note regarding
my perception of privacy and security issues with Gmail, after
a flurry of 'I have Gmail invites, if anyone wants one' posts. 
Others responed to my single post, but I did not add any further
posts to this (or any other topic).

I got a stern message that was called my 'third' warning, and
that any further off-topic posts would get my posting privileges

I was puzzled by this, since I basically lurk on the list, and
have made very few postings.  I replied to Susan privately that,
among other things, I had no record nor recollection of any
previous warnings, and asked politely for information regarding
these, since I seemed to have used up my warning limit. To this
day I have received no replies to that query message whatsoever.
