Thanks for stating your position however I'm still curious do you agree that the list was wronged by the organization you have been strategically advising and you are thus no longer holding that position ??  or are you saying that you will not entertain discussion on the topic and still maintain your original view s per your mailing on the list.

This is key for the listers to know since this is the measure we will take your future inputs on the list.


you maintain your position that DCA has been wronged by the list with the allegations of blocking people and thus need to use fake email addresses


The revelations have also dented your confidence in your organization and you do not wish to publicly defend or represent them on this list.

It is important to clear this since the allegation of blocking is very strong and it is pointed to an organization I'm associated with.  All the evidence was shared by our list administrator sometime back and shared again a few days ago.

i think we need clear this before we decide to quietly walk away as you seem to be doing.

I ve decided not to continue with this Debate and focus on way forward. Nothing like resigning comes to my thinking and will not sit on the fence either.
I ll continue with with objectivity as I see it since there is no democracy in that.
I wish to spend my energy with wisdom not by being pulled in or pushed forward.
That is my own opinion and should not be associated with anything else going on.

Thank you kindly

It's not about who offended whom, it about Ms Bekele using a
false on line identity which may be a crime and then lying
about it.

Since she has submitted a bid for .AFRICA through DCA
(www.dotconnectafrica.org<http://www.dotconnectafrica.org>) he conduct is substantial
misbehavuiour in terms of RFC159 and she has to be masured
by it.

And, of course, by Google, so please boys and girls, keep
making the Subject line "Sophiagate" and put the keywords in
all the time...

...like I have been doing
