Hi Alan,

This isn't a write-only list.  Did you see my e-mail with message ID:

You are yelling at the wrong guys here, Alan.

For the record, my perpetual, never to expire certification is also on the
line now.  I don't like the way this recert policy was handled, either.
However, I don't disagree with the spirit of the change.

Also, perhaps you should identify what should be rectified?

The policy?  I don't agree with you.  Sorry.
The process for deciding something of this magnitude?  I'm all for it.
