Hi Torsten,

First I want to say thanks for everything you did mention in the rest of 
your email. There's a lot information there and it does make the 
picture a lot clearer. I'm also convinced that the majority of LPI's 
support base are smart people who will understand that needs and 
circumstance sometimes stay the same and sometimes change.

I did want to comment directly on the paragraph I quoted above, to say 
that whereas I don't agree with how this change was communicated to us, 
that I still support LPI fully. These days I don't get to do as much 
LPI work as I would like, but hopefully this is a temporary state of 

To me, the LPI certs are still as important as they ever were and still 
a vital part of getting Linux "out there".
