Hi, Steve, All:

Below are some images that may, or may not help us make our points in
the CAPTCHA document. Setting aside for the moment the process problem
that we're currently in the midst of a CfC, do these add materially to
our argument?

In other words should we incorporate these images, any of them? If so,
Steve, can you help figure out where in the document.

If RQTF believes adding illustrations of our points helps our case, I
will figure out how to manage the process problem. I should note that I
did ask Jennie about possibly illustrating CAPTCHA with images that were
licensed in way that would allow us to use them.
