To date no one has really commented on the rules for the debate, so
I'll assume that the proposed format is acceptable unless someone
The next small issue as far as format goes is the number of candidates
this year. I'm not sure how well a 9 candidate debate will work, and a
suggestion was made to hold two separate debates. I'm open to do
either even though the second means more work for me, but I don't want
to unecessarily segregate candidates if that can be avoided.
I'd like to make a decision on the time for the debate within the next
few days, so if you have serious objections to either method, you need
to make them known.
Quite the contrary; they *love* collateral damage. If they can make
you miserable enough, maybe you'll stop using email entirely. Once
enough people do that, then there'll be no legitimate reason left for
anyone to run an SMTP server, and the spam problem will be solved.
