Israel apologise

Finally Israel apologised. It took 15 months for Israeli government to apologise spy scandal.

What happened? In March 2004, New Zealand arrested two Mossad agents, Uriel Zoshe Kelman and Eli Cara. Those two spies obtained New Zealand passports fraudulently. They were convicted in July last year and deported in September after serving two months of their six months prison sentences.

Since the such "utterly unacceptable" behaviour and the refusal to apologise, New Zealand government postponed foreign ministry consultations and Israeli officials who wanted to visit New Zealand had to apply for visas.

Of course, after the apology, the relationship between New Zealand and Israel resumed.

There's a similar issue between SillyDog701 and ufaq.org. Last November, I was banned by UFAQ.org.
I was firstly banned by following sign:
no access to UFAQ.org

Later, they upgraded the banning image to me. Yes, directly to my IP address.
banned from UFAQ.org

Then, I also discovered that UFAQ.org censored "SillyDog" to "GoofyMutt". I asked for response,

Jay Garcia replied:
I didn't write that or censor it. The user that posted it did. I'll
delete the post if that makes you happy as I don't approve of it either.
You're getting awful close to being banned Antony.

Since this newsgroup post Jay Garcia replied to has been removed (only a few people can view it, and Jay Garcia is believed to be one of those), I provide a screenshot of it:

Such word censoring was even caught by Google's cache:
ufaq.org censors SillyDog701

And Mr Jay Garcia denied again and blamed that to Google.

Somebody, not me, is playing a joke on you Antony. I have no such censor
enabled on the UFAQ. SillyDog701 shows up as SillyDog701 everywhere that
I know of on the UFAQ. Maybe there's somebody at Google that "has it in
for you", time to invesitgate and punish the perpetrator.

Since the cybersquatting issue being discovered by me on 8th May 2005, Jay Garcia finally blamed to an unknown admin.

2) The word censor episode on the UFAQ was done by another admin, I won't say who, not ChrisI "he's not an admin" and it's nobody you know, and when I discovered it myself, I immediately removed it.

> ufaq.org bans and cybersquats SillyDog701

Mr Jay Garcia still refuses to apologise to word censoring game on SillyDog701.
