Re: [xml-dev] Recent allegations about me

This discussion seems to have forgotten some of the alleged facts

Microsoft isn't allowed to edit the entry in question (never quite 
understood that point)
At any rate an independent person seemed to be a fairer way to do it

Q. Do you want the independent person to be an unpaid zealot or a paid, 
well regarded member of the industry?
The implication is that Microsoft wants to bend the truth and at any 
rate can't be trusted. That's not black and white - the courts have 
already determined Microsoft can't be trusted on all matters, but not 
this particular matter.

Q. How do we know the other entries haven't been paid for?

Q. When we edited the wikipedia entry  for Roger, the work was done by 
daughter - what if I said I paid her (a student) to do it? Does that 
make the entry tainted, or did we just encourage a young engineering 
student to take an interest?

Storm in a teacup.

Keep up the good work Rick.
