Tonight I did a sad thing - unsubbed from an email group I've belonged to since its inception in November 2000. It had always been a forum for free speech, until recently when a new moderator took over. This person, who I dubbed the Email Nazi, started throwing people off the list for asking questions about the rules, and the structure of the list. That was bad enough. But when she started playing favourites, that's when I couldn't stomach any more.
