If no one person was intended to be singled out, why respond to Dan's
message.  His message, that which you quoted, stated simply that he
was removing himself from a lot of evolt.org duties.  Why say "As are
we all, Dan." and then proceed to re-explain to him on what we are all
working towards?  Sounded like singling out to me, consciously or
subconsciously.  I believe your message could have been attached to
Amanda's second post with equal effect but wasn't.  Not that it really
matters.  I was mainly just curious.  I'll drop it now as others have


Who is John Galt?
