Simply not acting is not a refusal to act, it's just a lack of activity. In fact, the constitution specifically allows for people to simply not act and there is no way, other than an amendment to the Social Contract, to force a group into activity. > > If so, on what grounds was it made?

There is a great difference between a refusal to do something and simply not doing it because you haven't got around/got the time to do it today. Personally, I think there are far more important skills for an ftpmaster than simple communication. They are delegates of the Project Leader so it is up to leader to ensure proper communication, even if that means doing so himself -- which he has done, despite people's best efforts to ignore it. Scott -- Have you ever, ever felt like this? Had strange things happen? Are you going round the twist?
