I find that hard to believe...
If Dallas had voted for you, I doubt you would have challenged it.

What else is there???
Why have a ballot choice with a binary answer, if one is supposed to reject one
of the 2 possible answers?
Why was your ballot or Mr Mohn's ballots so righteous?
Sometimes its the personal interaction one observes that one uses as
Maybe a person running for Parliament has 4568 PHD's and bookoo years of
experience, but yet has social positions and a matching agenda that are
opposite your own, somehow I doubt you would vote for that MP wannabe..

Outspoken opinions on the FTSC for what purpose??
Do you plan on voicing your non-Fidonet related opinions on the FTSC?
Will you crusade to have canned laughter banned from US TV programming when

I hope you plan on leaving the non-fidonet related baggage in the top left hand
