You are the driving motor of this trio of dissidents and you exercise
power through your keyboard. Disproportionate power, compared to all those

My dear William,
It does not make any difference. We are talking about representing
Whatever IC Charter comes up, I will want to ensure that that the model is
democratic, not totalitarian. And that whoever ends up speaking for the
Individual DN owners is not a stooge.

Deeply grateful for that William. Your kindness and generosity exceeds
expectations , once again.
Sorry for bringing up the April 1999, IDNO petition in the considerans of
It was only one of the many considerations, but I'm deeply sorry , sir.
Please do not support my unworthy motion.
