I sincerely apologize to the OSMF and OSM talk list subscribers for the 
flood of what I consider off topic traffic - I will continue to only 
reply to the 3 or 4 people who have disliked HOT US Inc. for years now 
on the HOT US Inc. voting members list where I feel these discussions 
are best had and are welcome.

Those 3 or 4 people have lost their arguments on that list for a long 
time now and HOT has moved on. Unfortunately they have seized on the 
idea of dragging their years old grievances on to other lists to 
embarrass and smear HOT US Inc.

Sadly the first part has worked. I am terribly embarrassed by them and 
their actions.

We have respectfully asked them several times to resign from HOT US Inc. 
membership given how they feel about HOT US Inc., yet for some unknown 
reason they continue to stay members.

I of course leave it up to other list moderators to decide what threads 
are appropriate and productive for the lists they moderate. All of our 
voting members remain unmoderated on our voting members discussion list 
where I encourage them again to continue these discussions if they feel 
it necessary.

Rod - please see my forth coming reply on the HOT US Inc. voting members 

Board Vice President
