Technically you're right Chris.

Practically you're wrong. I think you were asked about three times in
Bristol 2011 Uk meeting whether you were blocking the proposal. Eventually
you said you were just "raising concerns".

Well, the effect of raising those concerns the previous year on the New
IMC list was to bring our application to a grinding halt, just ahead of
launch date.


What happened then was, instead of going into a frenzy of finger-pointing,
we just got on with some media activism, outreach, that kinda stuff, like
we would have done anyhow, to give anyone who had any doubts the
opportunity to judge us by our actions, rather than on the basis of torrid
emails and lone-gun wiki-ramblings.

And that's an approach I'd recommend to any potential IMC running into
tough questions on the New IMC list.
