For the longest time I didn't get it.
Why does Brett refuse to give up the nylxs.org domain?
It seems malicious. But it is the only possible weapon he has against
Ruben's attacks. Ruben has been publicly slamming those two for weeks
and for what?
A small group that had been involved in or around nyfairuse, decided
that they didn't agree with some of Ruben's tactics, and or decided
differently about the best procedure for getting a net connection, or
making their voice heard, and broke off from Ruben.
This happens. We are in a free country right?
Ruben has been concentrating on getting NYLXS off the ground and running
and Brett and Jay and some others decided to take over or exclude Ruben
from nyfairuse because they wanted to employ different tactics, or
Ruben you should be proud that Brett and Jay are continuing the work you
started. Are doing this with more energy than before you had been
involved with them. You should not be insulting them on every possible
list and hosting confusing double meetings, which move around so much
only the true core can possibly find them.
I am sorry Ruben but I am not with you on this one. You have clearly
said that this issue is a make or break issue with you. In a democratic
organisation PEOPLE MUST BE ALLOWED TO HAVE DIFFERING VIEW PIONTS. Any
challenge to this is a challenge to democracy itself.
I want to participate in a democracy with AS MANY MEMBERS AS POSSIBLE
doing all the wonderful things NYLXS was set up to do. I don't want to
be part of a party or clique or cabal where people are threatened
exclusion by not toeing the party line.

Fair Use -
because it's either fair use or useless....
