If it doesn't, to create it. To which you said "let's have it", but later "I won't do it nor surrender to/ support it". Which is fine, you're not obliged nor required as long as you let others try, but you considered it as attack against you: won't do yourself, but neither let others? And the other people "in charge" didn't even react at all for a long time (some still haven't). Which way to go? Or just stay where we are? I'm tired of the "borg" shouters crossfire and general "my game is the only that counts, do away with everything else" attitude while nobody declares what this one game is and takes action to quiet the noise. I prefer to have "noise" (in the sense of public official announcements) by a well defined leadership rather than by some random, small, occasionally irrational mob. -- © Rado S. -- You must provide YOUR effort for your goal!
