I read it.  It didn't seem to say anything specific.

If you disagree, then please feel welcome to cite.

Paul did _not_ say that.

Paul said that SBAY had not benefitted us in that (among other) areas, 
since SVLUG has its own resources.

You've just spent a paragraph ignoring my point.  But you should
certainly raise this again if SBAY ever _does_ start footing the bill
for general liability insurance.

You've again just spent a paragraph ignoring my point.

Obvious example that comes to mind:  BayLISA and Taos Mountain for the
