For the record Steve, let me say, I find Robert Kern's objection barely sufficient.

And yours less than that.

Note that you are not objecting to the crime but to the public expression of it.
Just look at your objection from the angle of a police officer, and you will see that it can certainly be construed as abetment/collusion (or whatever is the legalistic jargon. Obviously IANAL)

For the sake of covering my own arse let me say:
1. I have earlier described Nikos as a petty-criminal and consider myself justified.
2. I have earlier described condoning him as collusion and I reiterate that claim.

And I add
3. The collective actions of this list will help determine further whether he climbs or descends the criminal ladder.

Beyond that I reiterate what I said earlier in this thread: These discussions  'in-band' are counter-productive.

Setting up something like an invite-only yahoo or google group or some such to discuss this is free and takes 5 minutes.

I would have offered to do it but some people like Joshua Landau seem to think I am interested in world (aka Python-list) domination so not offering.
I was actually going to suggest that Steven d'Aprano do it. However before I could do that, he said (in CoC thread) that policing is not possible. Saddens me...

So I am suggesting you do it.

If I am invited I will contribute my 2c. If not, no objection: I dont consider myself a very important member of this list.

And yes: I hope you will consider rewording your objection, if not anything to cover your own you-know-what-where!!
