Please refrain from making ad-hominem attacks on the mailing list.

The E.123 reference was informative reference that provided a nice
informative summary of a normative reference was only available by paid
document, thus was not previously non-referenced.  In addition, to make it
even more clear I added a section that noted that authors MAY wish to use
E.123 formatting for their telephone numbers.

No, the coordinates references was both previously non-referenced, and not
particularly relevant.  I made an editor judgment call to remove a seemingly
not-very-related link and removed it.  That is sufficient reason.

Finally, note that this is yet another meta-discussion email that you have
sent, and thus as promised, absent any objections from anyone else on the
list (or IRC), you will shortly be banned from the mailing-list for a week.

I am sorry to do this, but your continued inability to listen to the
requests that have been made, and your continued flood of meta-discussion
emails on the list have left me no other choice in order to maintain the
quality of discussion on this list.
