Re: Comments on web site.
Before we make assumptions that we have no idea about, let me state that a
request has been put to several people for a written history about the
LDP. We have yet to receive the document. We are also in the process of
creating a sponsors document and an Auhtors section to give credit where
credit is due in regards to hosting, programming and all of that kind of
In regards to the Core Team statement, although there are a few out there
that could truly care less about who the "team" is. I can honestly say
that since we have placed the members in a very visible place people have
been actually been becoming positive about the project.
I have been contacted on numerous occasions about "Gee, it is nice to see
who I can yell at now". It has also served a great deal in helping people
direct their email to the correct places instead of just one person
getting all of it.
So next time, try asking question as to why or what instead of crawling on
a soap box. We are working extrememly hard to turn the LDP into a much
better situation than it has been in recent months, be patient we are
trying to rebuild a lot of this from scratch.
