what is wrong with all you people? i subscribed to this god-forsaken
listserv hoping that i'd learn something. all i've learned is that you're a
bunch of negative, argumentative, anti-collaborative bores. shame on you for
making the W3C look bad.

Agreed; this is preferable for us both.

>   That you stop hassling the HTML WG and spreading mistruths.

While I don't know what you consider hassling, and fear the subjectivity 
of the term could be used to call my trustworthyness in to question, I 
promise that, too.  You understand, better than most, that reasonable 
people are capable of honest disagreements on both political and 
technical matters.

I look forward to the final list of issues and the opportunity to 
address them conconclusivly.

Cheers,
James
