I ask for consistency. I would expect the co-chairs and other W3C 
personnel to respond consistently to all individuals. I would hope the 
co-chairs would act consistently regarding any activity associated with 
the HTML WG.

The last time I responded to your requests to rejoin the group, I was 
sent an email that was not sent to any other member.

If you want to reconsider the demands in that email, and activate the 
membership without those demands, then go ahead. Otherwise, no, I have 
no intention of opening myself up to such an experience again. I would 
expect my application to be treated exactly like every other request. No 
more, no less.

This still does not answer the questions I asked in the original email. 
I don't know how else to phrase my questions, though. I guess the W3C 
procedures will just have to apply.
