Hmm - if we were acting like kids, we'd've dropped out of this effort ages
ago.  As it is, many of us who are complaining - in a rational fashion
based on personal bad experiences with the Bovine `in' crowd - are doing so
because we want this effort to succeed as fast as possible.

It's seems pretty clear to me that the Bovine people don't understand how
to respond to offers of help or constructive criticism.  They can, however,
be goaded into action by the threat of competition and abuse.  In other
words, this effort is run by over-grown kids, not mature adults.  What
chance does the mailing list have?
