I agree with these statements. However, we have to ensure that technically capable people are available and in place to support the community and keep everything running smoothly. I personally think what is going on now is premature for evolt.org's best interest and would like to see it stop and take a step or two backward while we get more people in position to help and develop needed organization of support groups. I do not believe we can make the transition now without hiccups and extraordinary effort from some of us. It could damage evolt.org. You see Martin, the old saying "you should be careful what you ask for because you may get it" is kicking in here. You see, everything may not have been to everyone's liking, but they were what they were for a reason, even if not understood by all of us. Ron D.
