Please read what I wrote.
When I wrote "seem to be", it is because I am reporting on the basis of
what people have told me (secondhand evidence). I choose to believe them;
because your mileage may vary, I do not choose to represent that as proven
facts.Depends on the content of those messages/posts, doesn't it Harald? And 86

It is what was reported to me.
Re "multitude": 86 messages from July 3 to August 7 are in the archives and
are attributed to you; I don't know if that is what you mean by
"contributory in nature".
posts is not that many in the time frame you indicate here, on average per day,
given the multitude of subjects and the number of members of the DNSO GA
list.And this one, from Elizabeth, of course, has a directly FALSE statement

Some of the public notes about you on the GA list were these:
in it. To wit: "jeff williams is filtered from many ietf lists." This is categorically
untrue. I have never to my knowledge been "Filtered" form any IETF lists
to date, and I am on 4 such WG lists.And in this post you reference, Kent Crispin, well known for false and/or
misleading statements for years states the following as though I ever said
this: "INEG Group is a 2 billion
dollar company, and has registered half a million domains. Though
my age is quite advanced, I still run the Boston Marathon every
year, and in '56 and '57 I was first and second place,
respectively." Of course I never did. INEG Inc. had gross
revenues of $3.2b in 1999 and $2.8b in 1998. I have stated the 1998
numbers before exactly as I just did now, for gross revenue that is.
And this one from over a year ago (Nov. 1998) is also inaccurate
There are other interesting postings available, such as
as well, which I have pointed out many times before. For instance,
I never stated the following? "to have served as a judge for 7 years"
as Darrell Greenwood, states in this archived post.This is one of Bob's ideas of getting back at me because he ask me for some
and http://robin.fcn.net/mr99jeff.html; I do not know whether the listadmin
was told about these or not.
funding that I told him was matching funding in several private posts. He did
not have and I doubt has not the matching amount of money he was asking the IIF
fund for at that time.Ok, suggested. Either way, as I have pointed out time and time again, and

>"Suspected" is correct. But they obviously are not used by me.
I stand behind the word "suggested", and find no basis for the "obviously".
again here, your comments were or seem to be, based on only false comments
made by disgruntled individuals, some of which no longer are participants, and
some of which are totally false, As I have shown clearly again here.Check Wired for news info.
Aside: One aspect of the Jeff Williams phenomenon is that I have never,
ever seen anything - not a webpage, not a news report, not a public filing,
not a friend, no nothing - that suggests anyone's seen anything from Jeff
Williams or the INEGroup except for email and (sometimes) a voice on the
telephone.Check the archives again Harald. To Wit Examples:
The world in which the INEGroup and its 95K members exists seems to me
disconnected from the world the rest of us live in, apart from Jeff
Williams' email account.
So Harald, it looks as though you didn't look very closely or maybe even at all.Yes they are Harald or should be, as we represent a fair size and number
But the facts of Jeff Williams and the INEGroup are not relevant to the
purposes of this mailing list, so I'm not likely to spend more time on it here.
