Jim if you're paying attention, and I say if just because I know you have
been out of touch recently, you can't have missed that a number of positive
things HAPPENED here. So if you see people having confidence maybe it would
be good to think twice and wonder if we might have reasons to think
otherwise.

We are on the same page here, and if security issues (real ones) would be
left uncovered it would be fine if you and/or the board will step in.

In the meanwhile PLEASE let us work, and let's see if we can keep changing
in the right direction.
