I can. You can continue to protest otherwise ad nauseum, but that
doesn't make it true.

No, but if people actually bothered to click through links when I send
them they'd see who suggested things as it's in the meeting logs.
Granted sometimes it happens in closed mailing lists, but on this
occasion it was in the open. Pretty clear that Mark suggested shutting
the list down.

We discussed these lists on multiple occasions and on some of those
occasions it was decided to not shut them down, on one occasion for
one list it was decided to shut it down.
