[SLUG] Fw: Side issue about Sydney Linux User Group



Hi all

Last week or so a thread was posted re the Hague Treaty. I have been
pursuing this. I sent an email to Richard Stallman re his article. I
mentioned that the thread was posted on SLUG. He has made a number of
replies to me, but the one below is a request to SLUG.

Don't flame me. I'm just the messenger
