Mike and others as it applies,

I have a question or two.  I don't care if you, or others, reply to this 
with a answer, just think on it.  A policy, rule if you will, has been 
decided on by the council.  This after MUCH discussion on this list and 
the council hearing both sides of the argument.  You, apparently on your 
own or with a few others, have decided to ignore the policy or rule.

What would you think if someone else ignores another rule that affects 
you, negatively of course?  What would you do?  What do you think should 
be done to the person ignoring the rule?  Should that person be allowed 
to do so with no consequences at all?  Just everyone do as they wish 
regardless of the rules.  What affect would that have on Gentoo as a 
whole?  Do you really want to see this happen after all the mess Gentoo 
has been through in the past?

Think on that for a bit.  Give it a day or so or better yet, sleep on it.

Again, I don't care for you to answer or reply.  Just think.

Dale
