It would seem to me in the best interest of the foundation that you
should have brought this forward as Mike Lin did. For that matter any
council/board/member of the foundation that was aware of this should
have brought it forward although I guess it would not be in the interest
of employees/share holders etc. of Jabber inc. to point these things

Thanks Mike for bringing this to our attention, guess we should all
review the press releases from jabber inc. more often.

Guess we might find out more next week.

They've been doing that for a while. Personally I have encouraged all
concerned (and have followed this recommendation when I write any copy
for the company) to always use "Jabber, Inc." when referring to the
company. However, not everyone sees it as I do.
