I meant the format was unfortunate == too slow (due to being busy or
uninterested) or bad == contradictory (playing games).
The content (the "answers") is fine (once I got them or figured it
out), because no answer would have been "wrong". I was asking what
the status is _for themselves_, not to please me or anyone else.

I would have been happier if _they_ had taken the roles to define
and control "borg" (since _they_ probably had more experience about
what qualifies), but anyone else is fine, too, after they declined.
I'm just looking for _someone_! Preferably those with more
experience than I have (when it comes to Bronco).

Intra-sytle, i.e. "borg" definition is not solved.
Dave has explicitely answered inter-style.

Establishing a social and technical system to have "fair" games with
regard to "borg", once we know what "borg" definitely means.
For each of the styles.

Has the "borg" issue changed since I stopped playing regularly?
	(as other veterans who are still around)
Aren't there still features in one or the other client considered
"too much" for "netrek"?
Without the mentioned system it's just a matter of time that either
accusations and bad blood rise again or real cheaters come up?
(today it's more likely than in the past, as we see lamers DoS
Netrek servers or spoiled Strugeon players losing ground on "real
netrek" servers and possibly going the simple way of the dark side
to catch up: when the in-game power-ups are gone, technical might
fill the gap)
