Schepers and I had Indian food at Azitra's.  We plotted the overthrow of 
the W3C.  The food was delicious.]

David did himself a disservice.  If the remainder were a separate email, 
I would have been actively trying to assist him with that effort. 
However, it was not a separate email.  There is no point in reading past 
text that condones the original behavior.

I am not ignoring the summary issue.  It's status is still open.  In 
fact, the action is assigned to me.  No draft, including Ian's will go 
to Last Call with open issues.

Those that are able to express themselves civilly with be given every 
opportunity to be heard between now and then.  Those that can not will 
not only be ignored, they will soon find that they are not welcome here. 
  At all.
