Christian,

As per Section 4.07 of the OWASP Foundation Bylaws, "Participation in OWASP
activities (conferences, meetings, mailing lists, projects, etc) does not
require membership, but is subject to adherence to the OWASP Code of Ethics
and OWASP leaders may revoke the privilege of participation to those who
choose not to abide."  Due to repeated perceived violations of the OWASP
Code of Ethics, which I outline below, I have invoked section 4.07 of the
OWASP Foundation Bylaws and asked to have your privilege to post to the
mailing list revoked.  This e-mail shall serve as your official notice of
this action with the OWASP Board of Directors cc'd for inclusion in the
Foundation records.  Per the Bylaws, if you believe that this revocation is
unjustified, you have the option to appeal this decision by notifying the
OWASP Board of Directors within 14 days.
