I'm unclear on what your complaint is here, if any.  I suspect random
smoke-blowing, on the whole.

You're correct that Drew had, previously, told some people that
_eventually_ we'd need to remove the server from his colo.  You know
this because he told me, and _I told you_.

By contrast, Drew's news that need for removal was imminent had gone
only to "Officers" -- and thus was seen only by Marc Merlin (as Micah
and Paul Reed had all that mail procmailed off to mboxes that they
weren't reading).

You had, however, absolutely nothing to do with the matter I actually 
posted about, and I notice that your present comments are utterly
irrelevant to the point I was making about Reed's (characteristic) role
and the underlying reason for his lack of knowledge -- which reason
emerged only afterwards.  (Thus my point.)

I'm actually now oddly nostalgic for the days of Reed being almost
completely out of touch.  Better that than continually coming to our --
_and_ at least one other local group's -- events tanked to the gills.
