Here's my thoughts regarding Kurt's cyber ambush , as expressed to Dr. Rihn

>>Dear Dick,
>>Let me begin by saying that I have met, talked with, read postings to the
IAC exploder submitted by, and watched fly, Kurt Haukohl.  He has been
friendly, made constructive suggestions and offered encouragement while
other "hot" competition pilots have behaved as if I were the proverbial,
red-headed step child.
>>To the purpose of this E-mail.  I am appalled that Kurt Haukohl has been
summarily evicted from the IAC exploder.  Certainly, at times, his demeanor
or net etiquette has not been perfect, but being 'booted' from the list is
not in the spirit of a free and open exchange of ideas.  In particular, a
subliminal eviction executed by one person (if that was indeed solely Larry
Walls' decision and action) , without benefit of any public proceeding,
suggests the organization as a whole, is lacking forthrightness and
integrity.  Or, was Kurt evicted because, at times, he had challenged the
>>I would strongly suggest that two actions occur.  One, that if the IAC is
going to lend their name to this list and wishes to retain some amount of
credibility that prior to removing someone from the list, some form of
'public' proceeding occur.  Two, that Kurt Haukohl be reinstated to the IAC
exploder list.

Subject: Re: Kurt's Eviction/ Cyber Execution

I have just arrived home from AWAC and read your concern for Kurt's status.
 The IAC does not control the exploder list.  An earlier suggestion on my
part that this be moved under the IAC/EAA banner to provide better protection
from spam led to an outcry that this was a disguised attempt at IAC
censorship.  I have therefore kept hands off.  The exploder will be free of
IAC leadership control as far as I am concerned.  It has its own life.  There
is a place for a free-wheeling forum apart from "official" IAC Web Site
activity.  The readers and exploder master can make it whatever they wish. 

Dick Rihn, Pres., IAC
