Sorry, I apologize for this missunderstanding, I agree 100%.

Well, as you can see the moderator even let pass my post, maybe that has to do with respect of freedom of opinon ?
Just to not be missunderstood, it is not my desire that Mr. Parks postings should be blocked or censured in any way.

I did not criticise his mathematical contributions.
Well of course it is questionable if I am at all entiteled to criticise Mr.  Park, but why should it be inadmissible to do this (if at all) on the basis of his public personal site ?


I just afforded to post my personal view about Mr Parks link and its particular content. I am not in the position and it is not my intention to direct Mr. Park how to set his links, nevertheless, in my opinion a direct link to his mathematica related pages would be preferable when posting in a mathematical forum.

this way it would be much easyer to argue that it is ones own fault when stumbling over the political statement.

The contents of Mr. Parks political statement forced me to my post, which of course is partialy hypocritical, but I must confess I could not resist to post a political motivated counter statement and I can not regret this.


Nevertehless I hope the forum can pardon me for doing so.
