hey dan,

| adrian is the new thelist admin. i'm tired of battling about the whole
| issue and getting personaly bitchslapped offlist everytime i try don't
| agree with something.

i honestly don't think that was his intention to bitchslap you personally.
sorry to see you feel that way.

| i've made the technical argument for the way things are

that you have, however others have expressed a different opinion, an
opinion that is also technically possible. sometimes one just has to go
against one's own belief, for the sake of the many (there is a better
english quote somewhere).

| its pretty apparent that a couple very outspoken people don't want me to
| have anything to do with evolt anymore, no matter how much they sugar
| coat it.

that is far from true.
Now dan, we've been friends and we've been foes, but never ever have i
heard *anyone* speak of you not being a part of evolt.org. nor have i ever
heard *anyone* being ungrateful for all you've done for evolt.org. even
when participating in the most irrational discussions. *everyone* knows
that you've put in a lot of miles. sometimes it just feels that the miles
of others aren't valued as much.

| i do thank them for having he courtesy to bring out the personal attcks
| on and off list while i was in the country this time though. there have
| been those of us who've said we put so much time into evolt because its
| fun, ya know? how fun are some of you making it?

again. i have the utmost faith that this was not supposed to be a personal
attack. attack on a decision you've made, sure, but not on you personally.
and yes, there is a distinction between the two. i've resented the
decisions you've made in the past, but never the person.

however, turning back to the question you ask above, one could argue that
the decision you made in the past (with the filtering and non-member
posting to the lists) is far from fun for many. and the persistense in not
changing that decision, might be frustrating to some.

please dan, remember, there is a dispute about a decision, not a character.
(and no i'm not sugar coating anything here)

lets keep on working for a better evolt.org
