Can you please clarify if this statement represents the policy of the Living
Computer Museum or is it something more personal?  Perhaps some qualification
or a re-phrasing would be useful as it does not appear to make sense as it

I think you may have seen or participated in some of the many discussions we
have had on this topic on this list?  In light of these discussions, I find it
hard to see how a categorical statement such as this one could be justified.
