I haven't taken the opposite opinion to *everything* that was said, in 
fact I agreed with a lot of stuff.

Sigh, I haven't nitpicked on every word. Yes, sometimes I asked for 
clarification on what someone meant (e.g. elfur saying "someone from our 
past" which I took to mean someone who was no longer around), but I 
haven't picked up anyone on every single point.

Err, from the posts I've seen everyone has been *backing* Jeff. All I 
asked about was whether it was a good idea and fair to rely on one 
person so much, *not* whether it's his fault for being busy or anything 
like that.

But you'll be pleased to know that your latest email (in addition to 
martin's) has well and truely put me off getting involved with evolt for 
good. I think I'll lurk instead for a while and chuckle when I see how 
little anything has been acted on over the next few months.
