<nettime> RE: False Allegation of Copyright Violation

     [orig To: "'John Young'" <>]

Dear Mr. Young:

I do apologize for having angered the many individuals who may have
received my message and especially to you.  I obviously did not
understand what sort of service you provided to nettime and I had no
idea that my message to you and to nettime would be appear in places it
was never meant to be.

The mistake is mine and should not be attributed to Professor Frankfurt
or to Princeton University Press.

Joan Gilbert, chastened and repentant

Dear Ms. Gilbert,

Your allegation is mistaken, our site never published
On Bullshit, but merely pointed to a web site where is
could be read.

We have seen a number of your shotgun allegations fired
at various innocents and noted the adverse effect they are
having on the reputations of Princeton University Press
Mr. Frankfurt.

If Princeton University Press is above contrition due to
DMCA obsession, it would ease the damage you have
done to Mr. Frankfurt's now tarnished reputation if you
would reissue all your blundering messages with an
apology, as Mr. Frankfurt has done in one instance after
he learned of your demonstrating the point of his essay.
