Hey, I'm just offering my opinion.  So I added an "IMO" up there.  I'm
naysaying?  You asked about some projects, events and topics.  I
pointed out that some folks, even some folks from KWLUG have done some
of these things before.  Doesn't this encourage you.  It can all be
done by folks just like us.

"Start facilitating"?  For your project to be named later?  I've said
I don't think that the groupware or mechanism is the problem.  IMO.

Then we disagree.  Respectfully.  I think it is easier for me to agree
to participate in a project with you at your request if you tell me
what that project is first.  Without that information the answer is
no.  This is not personal, unsolicited, you should not be offended.
There are very few people to whom I would say yes in that situation.
Very few.  That's just me and my cold, empty heart.

No ridicule intended.

I'm just not understanding.  Sorry.
