13 This was moved to another thread, as a casual glance at the subject
14 would have told you.

24 One of the nice things about technical discussions is that it is
25 entirely possible for one particular party to be entirely wrong. In
26 this case, Brian is entirely wrong, and calling him on it is the
27 correct thing to do.
29 If you would prefer to see fewer emails from me, perhaps you should
30 start telling people who post the same incorrect claims that have
31 already been demonstrated to be false over and over again to stop it.
32 One of the unfortunate tendencies the Council has shown in the past is
33 to treat any unreplied-to objection as being legitimate and cause for
34 an issue to be postponed, even if that issue has already been addressed
35 earlier on.
