Do you have a differing or counter definition for the term 'master' or
do you simply have a personal gripe with posts initiating from Bruce?
In the context of Craig's post, Bruce found the use of the term
master sloppy and called it a new term. He might have been mistaken
about that (people make mistakes), but he offered us the definition
of 'master' that he was going to use for the context of that email.
The appropriate response to that would have been to cite the definition
of the term 'master' from iTip _AND_ cite whether or not you agreed
that Craig's use of the term 'master' followed with Bruce's definition.
Instead you simply called Bruce a liar and made a passing reference to iTip
thereby making us all duplicate the lookup work and reread the posts to
see if the usage was consistent with the real definition or with Craig's.
Please don't do that, it doesn't help me interpret what you believe, nor
give any meaningful correction to Bruce's purported misdirection.
Do you have a different definition for the term 'master' for use in Bruce's
response to Craig? If so, I request you assert it.
I believe Bruce made an accurate assessment of Craig's usage despite the
differing definition in iTIP. I believe that Craig's usage meant the copy
in the CU's storage. For the context of Bruce's response to Craig, and
for that thread only or at least only that message, do you have a
differing interpretation that would prevent us from moving forward on
This is an extemely sensitive topic capable of creating thousands of
unproductive lines of text and we aren't off to a great start.
I request that we all give each other a little more way leeway than is
usual until we start getting some traction on the topic (which still hasn't
even been clearly identified). And that really means _all_ of us (except
of course the chairs, they can and should be able to crack down whenever
feel things are getting out of hand).
Trying to reach understanding so that we may then try and move toward
