I don't think it has to be my foundation in order to have an interest
in it.  I'm very much committed to the vision of "a world in which
every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of
all human knowledge".  And I think the Foundation has done a lot of
things that have helped move toward that vision.  But it's not my
Foundation.  I participate in this mailing list as an interested
person, and as someone willing to help out.

But why should I waste my breath?  If you'd prefer to avoid continuing
this discussion by attacking me personally instead of responding to my
points, that's your perogative.
