Harvey, I think the sequence of things and who wrote what to whom and
when can be seen very clearly in the archives of the exi-chat (open to
all list members), wta-talk (open to all list members), and wtahall
(open to all WTA paying members). I won't repeat what is on the
archives for everyone to see.
It is not the WTA board fighting among itself in public again, it is
two Board members who decided to take the debate to the exi-chat list,
forcing the others to respond.
Can we just stop this?
btw I did not tell Natasha what she should do I told her what I would
consider doing if I were in her place it is not the same thing.
