Nobody disputed any of the facts in my Advogato article at
http://www.advogato.org/article/329.html .  It would be hard to do --
they're all taken from SPI's website and other public records.

Speaking of which, I asked my lawyer what happens to a corporation
which fails to meet yearly (as required by New York State law).
Perhaps SPI, Incorporated should also ask its lawyer?

Excuse me, but YOU are rewriting history.  Check the domain
registration.  It's owned by SPI.  How can something be hijacked from
SPI if it's owned by SPI?  Now note the expiration date.  Can someone
at SPI explain how it got paid 7 years in advance?
