Dear Sam -- May I ask for clarification on just one
point of your recent message :

I simply do not understand the rationale behind this.

On what basis are you (as Chairman) willing to accept
hsivonen,  maciej, and lachy as three independent witnesses,
while denying the same status to jonas, rsayre and dbaron ?

And to address the same point from a different perspective,
by /whom/ are "hsivonen, maciej, and lachy generally considered
independent" ?
