I'm guessing the rest, like me until now, were hoping your noise would  
go away without everyone having to create _even more noise_ about it.

 From your other mail:

Since it's so very important then no doubt those TLD holders will be  
subscribing to your list to get this very important information.

Why does the poor management of your private root zone force the rest  
of us to waste time with your mails about it?

The consensus seemed to be pretty clear that everyone (but you) would  
be just fine with you not ever posting to this list again about your  
root zone.
