I think that's a question we're all asking Matin. And-in-this point, I don't think last week's repsonse was anything but premature and over anticipated.

I've had some feedback off list that's revealed-in-least to me, factors in all of this that weren't apparent from my perspective, or the board's perspective. I think I have a better idea of what is going on, and if anything good can come of this, our over-reaction last week flushed this out into the open.

I can assure you that it wasn't the BOD's intention (or my own, acting as an agent of the BOD) to create any bad blood or push away any segment/population of NANFA with this attempt to focus the email list. Hopefully we can proceed in a manner that doesn't perpetuate this any further. If I personally have created bad blood, I do sincerely appologize for myself.

In the meantime, I'm just going to be quiet, as I collect opinions and perspectives. Please continue to send thoughts along to me onlist, off list, concerning the guidelines and how they could be useful. Whatever you feel comfortable doing.

Despite what the going opinion of myself may be... I do have an open mind :)
