I deleted the post and forwarded it to the CCC moderation email alias, along
with the explanation that I deleted the message because I didn't think that CCC
should become the "dirty joke forum".

Fernando wrote me some mail in which he essentially called me a prude,
criticized my parents, and accused me of being narrow-minded and fanatical.  I
forwarded this back to the CCC moderation alias and replied.

I reiterated that I thought that it was right that I deleted the post, and
described a few obvious awful problems that we could have if I had allowed that
post to stay.  I suggested that if he wanted to repost it, I would not delete
it, but I reserved the right to make a response.

He replied defending the content of his post, and that was it until the "I
resign" post in here.

What did you think happened instead?
