          Open Letter to the Censors and Liars at Netcom, Inc.
          ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

     The following letter has been sent to Netcom via Certified Mail.
I'm posting it to the net as an Open Letter so you may all be witnesses
to this.  Netcom, having broken their contract and censored my BBS,
refuses to admit -- even to their own employees, apparently -- that
they have censored me or anyone else.

     Furthermore, Netcom keeps sending me ever-larger monthly bills,
even though they totally cut off my access on November 26, 1994.  It
seems the bastards are simply trying to ruin my credit record now, for
I have written and telephoned them several times for a corrected
(prorated) bill, with no results.  Their employees stupidly claim that
nobody has been censored.  I pointed out that I do NOT have a
functional logon and password there any more, so they promised to call
me back and give me my supposedly active logon and password.  Of
course, they never called back.

     Now, months later, they are still sending me ever-larger monthly
bills.  Now, perhaps, I will get results.

                   STILL CENSORED FROM THE INTERNET!


     Banished CPU has been -- and remains -- censored from the
Internet.  The (Canadian) CBC PrimeTime News camera crew has recently
interviewed me for 4 hours about the situation.  We are being
unscrupulously censored for politically and financially motivated
reasons.

     Here is the complete story:

     Banished CPU, a Freedom of Speech BBS, has been distributing
Holocaust Revisionist material through the Internet since 1991.  The
material addresses, in an objective manner, the question of WHAT REALLY
HAPPENED during the so-called "Holocaust".  The facts are both
"politically inconvenient" and undeniable.

     Over the years, organized Jewish pressure has succeeded in cutting
off our link to the Internet numerous times, using their traditional
methods of boycott, slander and terror.

     Netcom, a large commerical Internet provider based in San Jose,
California, served as our latest connection to the Internet for almost
a year, until they censored Banished CPU on November 26, 1994,
violating the contract they had formed with me.

     Before I signed on with Netcom, I informed them of the nature of
the material I distribute, and inquired about the level of Freedom of
Speech they offer.  I was told -- by a Netcom sales representitive who
identified herself as "Sherri" -- there would be no restrictions or
censorship of any kind, as long as the material conformed to U.S. law
(which, of course, it does.)  Agreeing to the stated terms, I paid the
initial sign-up fee and continued paying them each month for the
connection to the Internet.

     After a couple months of organized Jewish pressure, an unsigned
electronic message arrived from Netcom, informing me that I would no
longer be allowed to distribute messages in most Internet message areas
(USENET newsgroups).  The message specified only 12 newsgroups that I
would be allowed to post to, forbidding me from posting to any of the
other 7,000+ newsgroups (including many 100% appropriate newsgroups
such as soc.history!)  The message stated plainly that they were not
willing to discuss the issue.

     For months, I reluctantly obeyed the new "rule", even though it
violated the verbal contract they had entered into earlier.

     Then I distributed a Free Video Offer to a couple dozen newsgroups
outside of their arbitrary list of 12.  The video was "David Cole
Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper", which greatly infuriated and panicked
the Holocaust Lobby.  David Cole, producer of the video, is Jewish --
NOT a "Nazi" or an "anti-Semite" by any means.  Hundreds of copies were
sent all over the world within a matter of weeks.  Requests were still
pouring in when we were abruptly cut off.

     At first, Jewish pressure tried to get me kicked off for
"profiteering" (an informal taboo on the Internet).  A lady named
Margaret from Netcom wrote to me, informing me of the complaints and
asking me to cease and desist.  In reply, I pointed out that I was not
"profiteering" by any stretch of the imagination -- I was merely giving
out free, legal copies of someone else's video, and not collecting any
money whatsoever.  Margaret wrote back, apologizing for the
misunderstanding.

     The next day, however, I discovered that our link to the Internet
was no longer functional.  I made countless long distance phone calls
to Netcom's offices in California.  I left messages with receptionists
for their managers, supervisors and technical support staff.  For eight
full days, nobody at Netcom would take or return my calls.  In the
meantime, Banished CPU's link to the outside world was cut, effectively
censoring me and all of my callers.  I discovered that Netcom was
DELETING all of my callers' mail, which was in many cases both
important and irreplaceable.

     Finally, after 8 days of silence, someone at Netcom called and
left a message on my answering machine, informing me that Banished CPU
had been cut off because I posted to newsgroups other than the 12 that
they had illegally mandated.  They violated their contract, bowing to
the Jewish demands to censor me.

     Now, over 3 months after Netcom first censored us, we are still
without an Internet connection, even though for several months one small
Internet provider ("Quicknet") was SUPPOSEDLY trying to provide us with
a link.  According to Quicknet, InterNIC (root@internic.net) refused to
process the necessary re-registration form.  Censored we remain.  I have
given up on Quicknet, and we are now in the month-long process of
signing up with another Internet provider (again waiting on InterNIC!)

     In the meantime, messages addressed to myself and my callers are
reportedly still being deleted by Netcom, returning no warning message
whatsoever -- giving the impression that the messages are received but
ignored.  Netcom continues in their unethical behavior, and is refusing
to speak to the CBC PrimeTime News.

     Should you wish to contact Netcom and let them know how you feel
about their unprofessional behavior, the following information may be
of some use:


Internet e-mail address:  root@netcom.com
Toll-free sales line:  1-800-501-8649
Technical support line:  (408) 983-5970
Emergency pager number:  (408) 951-1193


                                Sincerely,

                                Dan Gannon (a.k.a. Maynard)
