I'm all in favor of getting rid of people who either don't understand why this isn't a Good Idea or simply don't care, but I'm also in favor of giving them fair warning.  Of course, if they don't bother to RTFM, they won't see the warning, but there's only so much we can do, and IMO, providing the warning is enough.

I didn't just remove someone's membership at a whim. I looked into it and found out that the original poster wasn't even a list member. He sent a question to the list a while ago, so I added him to the 'accepted senders' list at that time. Since he's not really a part of the community I made the decision to revoke his access privilege. If he will want to actually join the list in the future I won't object.
