Conspiracies, conspiracies everywhere. Look before you leap. The idea of
putting in RFC 1591 was mine, and I still like it. I was asked for specific
language, and I neglected to supply it, and the language that was put in
missed something that John Reynolds caught.
NSI never suggested anything along these lines. I think we should take out
the last line. That way, we are only talking about *due process*. Do you
think that must originate from NSI also?
