that's fine jeff.  I conceded that point and have not asked for
apologies of any kind.  I don't want an announcement going out with
"regretable name" on it and killing any possible funds that we may
generate from the program.

This is not about opinions, evolt.org is not responsible for the site or
domain name, evolt.org is not endorsing the site or domain name, simply
telling our membership the program is available to raise funds for
evolt.org operations.  And since some of us do not like the name or
site, let people know that it will be improving and to domain will be
changing.  However, it is working, and we can generate revenue while the
improvements are being done.

If Davids point was to do something different with the last paragraph, I
am fine with that.  Marlenes original post, with Martin's suggested
change to the first paragraph and doing something different with domain
name explaination is all I would like to see changed.

My suggested replacement was simply that a suggestion.  Let's no bash
and quibble forever.  Let's find good words and get things started.
 After that, it will get better.
