I'm not taking any sides in this right now, I've better things to spend 
my energy on.

 

Issue basically is:

 

Is icca for its members ?

 

or is icca for itself ?

 

I guess Thorsten was using Mchess as an illustration, because he 
believes icca is for itself. He believes this, I guess, out of personal 
experience. For example, it seems that Thorsten is in effect banned 
right now. Thorsten can tell us about this if he wants.

 

My past experience is that icca is for itself.

 

Probably once it was not, but after many years, these things have a 
habit of ossifying and becoming entrenched. I think that is what has 
happened.

 

We can carry on with tis, tisn't, tis, tisn't, Thorsten, Bruce, me, Bob 
for a long time. Essentially one side believes one thing and the other 
not.

 

Its also unlikely that either side will change its view.
