I'm not sure I said that.  However, now that you mention it, I would like
to clarify one point that I did make as follows:

When I say "that's not accurate" I meant that Thomas is not accurately
reporting the thread in that he has not even mentioned the archives.  This
aspect was a significant part of the discussion (at least as far as I was
concerned).  My meaning should be clear in the context of the rest of the
paragraph (below).

I clearly stated who made the misleading communication.  I don't have the
names to hand but the guy who posted the closing down message said to
contact some corporate PR man.  When I did, he ignored my request.

The closing down message can therefore be seen as misleading.

I am keeping my 5,000 odd emails on the offchance that I will one day
be in a position to restore the archives myself.  I believe they may be
available as the Vpop archive at http://dompolicy.vpop.net but haven't
had time to check it out yet.  Apparently this dates back to 1998

My apologies if my wording implied any reflection on Chuck Gomes for
whom I have the greatest respect.  Sorry, Chuck !!

Quite a few people seem to support a working group.
