You are absolutly correct. And I am sorry it seemed I had left everyone hanging.

Literally, within the hour that jdub sent me the email and gave me
access to our mailing list I had it setup and had sent a message out
to the group. I doubt it was even an hour, probably 10 minues.

As far as the website goes, yeah, I'll admit its not great. But at
least I did something.
Nobody else did anything. If I hadnt done what I did we would have
much less right now.

Nobody informed the mailing list. How was I to know what was going on?

First I want to settle whats causing this argument with Andrew. If I
dont stop getting attacked then Im just going to walk away and you
guys can do whatever you like.

But I think you have some good ideas there and its something we can build on.
