Re: [ga] General Comments on the agenda

Oh yes "DR" Carrington......   Shall I start signing my posts "Dr" 
cook? ..... I have a PhD in Russian history, after all.  I well note 
Michael Froomkins quotes and his increasing frustration at the 
cavalier handling he receives at the hands of CORE ISOC crowd.

Your process is not a process but a travesty.  You expect defference 
from me after Jonathan's talking to Michael Froomkin like that?

Laughable.  One thing my Russian history is good for is spotting a 
Soviet style operation when one presents itself.  You have 
predetermined the outcome.  if you knew or cared about the internet 
you would distance yourself from this travesty.

Bring on the generalissimo sola and throw me off the list if you like 
..... I was placed on it without any request on my part.
