Re: [xml-dev] [offtopic] your participation is necessary


I've told you over and over that your unfortunate choice of "SQLn" (n 
currently equal to 5) doesn't win you any friends.  Your habit of 
demanding that people to whom you send email do your bidding turns 
people off.  And your obsession with this project has reached the 
level of true spam.  I know scores and scores of people to whom you 
send your demanding email.  Some company is probably going to 
blacklist your email addresses one of these days to protect their 
employees.  And you continue to send me email asking me to propose 
your technology for standardization through the USA national body, 
even though I have told you repeatedly that I will not do so...but 
you keep sending email worded as though you've never had a response from me.

You know (because many people, including me, have told you) how to 
pursue standardization -- join your national body and propose things 
through them, join some consortium and become active and submit it to 
them, etc.  But please STOP SPAMMING EVERYBODY!


P.S., I doubt very sincerely that anybody from Oracle told you that 
Oracle doesn't like new ideas.  You are obviously misrepresenting 
whatever you were told (which I imagine was something like "Corporate 
policy does not allow individual employees to accept technology from 
non-Oracle employees, but it has to be submitted formally using 
corporate procedures."
