|A number of people seem to be forgetting that abuse was done during the

|multiple "who" commands done on lists with large numbers of subscribers.

OK, but unless I misunderstood something, it was
unintentional "abuse", and it was stopped when
the complaints came in, and they committed to fix
those problems before even considering restarting.
Right?

|people objected very strongly to.

And their reaction to those objections was?
