Subject: UWA Ban on Link to Buffalo

I have followed the Rindos affair rather casually, but my interest was stimulated substantially when I read that in the Sunday Times that UWA had ordered the Graduate Student Association to delete their link to Buffalo.

I asked myself: "How long will it take me to find the URL"

Thanks to AltaVista, a search on "Rindos" took about 27 seconds. I then spent a lot of precious time catching up on the history of this mess.

The documentation I have *seen* strongly supports the allegation of a cover-up. If this can be refuted by *unseen* documentation in the possession of UWA, I am sure you will welcome the posting.

Of course, if you decide to black out UWA, they can always open their own page to disseminate the truth.

On the 'Net blacklists and bans are pretty hard to enforce.

Keep up the good work.

My thanks to UWA. Without the banning order I would probably never have visited your site.
