seb... i understand where you are coming from...

i have received a number of offlist posts today from people asking
me to put the pressure on again -- mostly because they've felt their
concerns were glossed over in favor of "gee-whiz"... many of them
have never commented because they've seen it dismissed in the

they also contacted me because they know i closed theforum

so, until this all gets straightened out (and i do agree with you, as
you can see in today's post to thesite at
http://lists.evolt.org/thesitearchive/2002-May/005352.html, which,

is assure you that theforum is *closed* to non-subsribers...
