And, realizing that, and being the inherently nice guy that I am, I
didn't call you on it or this rather disingenuous bit:
11th April 21:26

Samuel Thurston mails the list asking "if the item is indeed bumped to
21:00 UTC, then it will be discussed
at the meeting May 3 instead of April 19.. is this correct?"


11th April 21:34

I reply "yes that's right" to the direct question from Samuel.


_Nobody_ bumped the item. Nobody discussed bumping it any further that
I can see on the list.

The implied intent was pretty clear, Alan.  Sam was asking if the
change of meeting time changed the date of meeting.  You replied, "Yes."
At the time I, Sam and likely many more took your, "yes," to mean that
the meeting /had/ already been bumped to the later date.

But I'm sure that you are well aware of it and only fall back on
the 'letter of the law' argument to save face.  

I might do the same in similar circumstance.
