Like I said, I'm sorry for wasting the bits if that email was off
topic or not freeing dmitry. However, seeing as how the AAP is a 
publisher and many people have written the AAP -- the ACM even 
created a response, it seems very related to the Dmitry issue.

Especially when the Publishers make statements like this:

"I don't think our textbook is flawed," said Toshiaki Shirasawa, textbook
department chief at the book's publisher, Fusosha. "It's the textbooks in the past
that were wrong." 

Seems like the Publishers have a little too much power over there

However, I will make sure I double check any emails I send to this
list and make sure they relate to the freeing dmitry issue.

No further behavior correction emails with suggestions for new lists
are reqired, I now understand 
your motives.
