Isn't there enough of a lack of civility and common courtesy in the 
discussions around OOXML to satisfy everyone in the ODF "camp?"

This sort of comment isn't going to advance the discussion of a charter 
for the proposed "Interoperability and Conformance TC."

But, then I don't think abusing people who work for IBM is any more 
likely to lead to useful discussion than abusing anyone else.

It isn't brave, clever or whatever labels the self-anointed saviors of 
the world choose to apply to themselves.

It is, in a word, noise. Nothing more or less.

Otherwise hopeful that everyone is looking forward to a great weekend!
