Honestly - - what puzzles _me_ is that you, as a looong time knowie of the CCC
here, made not a single comment on the two scandals over there in Graz. You do
business as usual as if _nothing_ had happened. That puzzles me. Not enough -
now you repeat something Amir already had beaten to death months ago with almost
the same words? Is this an ICGA conspiracy? Did you read what your collegue
Billings wrote here in CCC? And where were _you_ at the time? And what exactly
did you _do_ in Graz? Why didn't you hold a connection to us here? You see -
questions over questions, and some very puzzling ones.
