Actually, that wasn't my main point. My main point was that, if you only
save meo, evolt doesn't exist. Plain and simple.

The priorities are weo and leo. And I think we've established that.

Let's worry about weo and leo. Then, if we still have the time, let's try
and save meo. And, when that time comes, I'll be helping you, Lach. I just
want to make sure we do what we need to do to keep evolt alive.

I understand that you really want to save meo. But, the rest of us really
want to save evolt. meo is a part of evolt. there is no meo without
evolt. if you save meo and not evolt, you've just got a new
non-evolt service for meo members.
