This is called the "do your homework" or the "Jeff Williams"(who uses it frequently) argument.
It is a major task to find your way in megabytes of archived postings and the burden of proof rests on the accuser.

Warning? Who brings up the accusation whenever the word IDNO is mentioned?
What is this warning? A transparent attempt to get away with accusations without the need to prove them?
Chris is right, a great deal of work has been done to get a constituency self-organized.
Why must it be killed? If it has flaws, let's correct them.
There are many members who know nothing of WXW's campaign to stop it dead. They don't read the GA list, or Idno-discuss for that matter.
They just ask to be represented and they have chosen the IDNO as their vehicle.
