    Hello Ward,

    15 Feb 22 16:41, you wrote to Jay Harris:

    There's no need to answer this but I'd love to hear about your reasoning of why you think this nomination is justified by past performance beyond "because I can" ...

    ... says the "invited guest" who has never been elected to the FTSC by his peers and has nothing but a history of insults and slander dealing with anyo he doesn't like.

    Your FTN skills end at being an overglorified nodelist clerk.

    So, Mr. Invited Guest, what FTN software have YOU written that justifies you being privy to the FTSC inner workings?

    There's no need to answer this either because I already know the answer like everyone else: you're a old Fidonet "has-been" that feels you have to justif your existance in Fidonet by using pedantic histrionics for attention becaus you could be easily "removed" from your technical position by the rest of us simply rerouting around you and your Z2C position by using methods you yourself helped "develop".

    You want to ask others for justification? It's time for you to provide the same thing.

    -- Sean

    ... Part of being old is knowing what to do with your wisdom.

    Sean, all current ZCs are invited guests, and for good reason. Been that way for quite some time.

    That is not completely true, but also not completely untrue .....

    Waaay waaay back when animals still could speak I mentioned to an FTSC-chair that they could decide upon standards as much as they wanted but without ZC-backing it did amount to very little. This was around that time when a particular (I think German) guy wanted to push something through and did not succeed. So he got himself elected in the FTSC, pushed his thing through and left Fidonet with some choicy words...

    To prevent things like that from happening again I requested access to the private deliberations of the FTSC ... and got it ... because I requested it ... not because it was granted out of vision.

    I think Scott was the chairman around that time ...

    Yes, Scott Little, Z3 and later Z3C and stepped down then as chair.

    Memory dims of those 20 years or so ago times.

    ZCs were invited guests in the private FTSC areas before Scott Little became the FTSC chairman ;)

    My dear man, I was the first one in ... accepted upon my own argumentation. Please stop rewriting Fido-history as if someone one day saw the light and had this grand idea to invite ZCs.

    It was necesaary to give the FTSC the credibility it needed ...
