There is no need to know exactly who's been doing any active work in, say, 
the past month in the netrek council. It's not a paid job and these people 
will do what they can when they can.

Anyone in the netrek community can answer your questions about borgs. 
However some might argue that only the key holder's or server gods' 
opinions actually hold any weight though.

I don't see you doing anything but making a lot of people read and type a 
lot on this mailing list.

I don't follow your train of thought here.

Your problem is you seem to feel like you have to comment on exactly 
everything someone writes in a post, so your posts will grow exponentially 
as the thread gets bigger. You should focus on staying to the key issue of 
the post and not write excessive information like the one above. Instead 
of keep asking questions that have already been answered and commenting on 
and writing things that aren't relevant to the thread, stay on the subject 
(like I haven't with this paragraph). This is the last time I will give 
you hints on this.
