Arjun,

Okay, this extended rant has gone on a long time and to what end? I 
haven't heard one thing that hasn't been said a thousand times since
the beginning of the web. We *all* know the problems and laying blame 
or calling the product of someone else's efforts "loser" does nothing
except possibly boost your ego. What in the hell are you trying to 
accomplish? Realistically, on this planet? What good does attempting 
to devalue attempts at cleaning up the mess out there really do for 
the community? Yes, the specs may be irrelevant and we're all misguided
fools without a clue on a useless mission to create twisted 
specifications that nobody reads which are quickly corrupted by evil
empire goons with thick glasses in cubicles and you are the SGML guru
in the ivory tower who knows better than all of us and I may have 
completely missed your point but I completely fail to be impressed
by anything said in the last week or so that might be HELPFUL. 

Get off the horse. 

Murray
