Re: [discuss] DNSO Glitches and process: A report from the DNSO front.


If I have ever met you, it escapes my memory.  Therefore, I
guess this is your way of saying "hello, nice to meet you..."

As this is an introduction, I would like to request that you
not attempt to "translate" any of my comments.  If you want
me to post in Japanese, than feel free to translate...  If I
am vague, by all means ask for clarification.

Your welcome Mark, anything I can do to help :-)  Drat, you 
saw through my hidden agenda hiding tactic :-(

The only possible constructive comment I can add, is that if you 
are looking for consensus (which is what I interpreted part of
Roeland's post to be about) jumping on someone who you think is
disagreeing with a point, attempting to change their words to suit
your point of view, and in a round about way, calling them dishonest
will not result in any form of consensus.

By the way, I really don't understand the reference to Bill Cosby...

Have a nice day anyway...
