Kalyan, please don't pretend that you are incapable of recognizing the
problem I'm addressing here. My last two responses to you were as a
moderator of this list. If you are prepared to self-regulate your behavior
on this list, I will consider responding to substantive matters. Till then,
you are on notice. I am watching the content and method of your
interactions with all list members.

My question remains, why would you want rejoin a list that you quit earlier
and then within three months, challenge the administrators of the list to
throw you out? Stop this childish behavior before you expect people to take
you seriously.
