    Robbery at the BRM?

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | LinuxWorld mentions that the BRM organisors are making a paper ballot on all
    | the 900 comments. It seems that the BRM organisors are "robbing national
    | delegations of the opportunity to propose their own modifications". *

    | The purpose of this robbery might be to avoid any fix to the standard.
    | MS-ECMA have not proposed any changes, and this robbery is designed to get
    | the message that the BRM have fixed some issues. *

    You can take the time to SPAM this crap but you run away from a debate with
    a person who is involved in the thick of the situation.

    And people still don't see what your true motive is here in COLA, Roy
    Schestowitz.

    Amazing.
