Dear members of the W3C,

The web is a unique medium in that it allows people from all over the 
world to share ideas with little investment in time and money and 
it's just starting to take off.
We have had to put up with the increasing commercialization of the 
web and all its usual annoyances like advertisements but this 
proposal could well mean the end for a lot of its participants: the 

You have won us, the developers, to support your standards 
recommendations and I think everyone has been very keen and excited 
about the progress so far.

Now please, keep those standards open and free giving everyone the 
chance to be a part of a living and growing web. Global communication 
and understanding will profit in the long run.

Regards	Martin Sammtleben
