*sigh* That's a big accusation to make. I would imagine that it's more of an
honest mistake by a very busy, under-appreciated JSF secretary.

Having a private conference isn't going to solve anything. Let's just get

find a closet to discuss the issue in.
This is the way wars are started -- unfounded accusations and a blatant
attempt to build a backing by taking discussions underground.
