No I'm not.  The fact that issue raisers have to put more effort into
their issue than the Working Group has to is a deliberate feature
intended specifically to prevent the WG from being overwhelmed and
shutting down.  This has always been the intention, and is a process
followed by all successful groups.

Again, please point out anywhere I have been rude.  I am certain that
I have spoken only in general and completely reasonable terms this
entire conversation.  You are reading insult where none exists, and
insulting me in turn.  Please stop.
