Dear members and moderators of the list,

I have just received the email below, from Mr Petros Nikolopoulos - whom I don't know personally, and with whom I have never, as far as I can remember, corresponded in a personal capacity or outside the list. I suppose the reason was the short comment I posted yesterday on Theodorakis.
I am not in this list in order to receive hate mail, no matter how inconsequential such mail may be; moreover, I feel extremely uneasy when collective targeting [ who is "my lot"? ] happens in the context, and as a consequence, of opinions expressed in the list.

I believe that this is a clear code violation and that moderators should look into it as soon as possible.

Dear DP,

If I were you I would look at the bigotry of left-wing and right-wing Greeks(from Greece) first before impressing foreigners opines about racism .Your lot has a lot to be ashamed of and really contributes to the racism against those of Greek background around the world. The sad thing is that you don’t even care ….

Thank you .
