Either get to the point .. or I won't read your stuff. And not reading 
it does not mean I agree with it.

Your on the Australian list.. a spade is a spade mate.

If you want to talk to the world of OSM then there are other lists.

If you have a specific problem .. Australian .. or problems ... then 
tell us what they are.

??? Then why go on about it? You seem to think that there is time for 
people to read through this stuff and try to make sense of it. Wrong. 
Every one has other things to do and this takes away from that.

No, don't.

Simply state your personal problem. No managerial words .. just the 
problem. No 'discussion brief'. Just in simple words .. what problem you
