Dr Whistler took considerable pains to describe the problems and your 
threat to him does not give me any confidence whatsoever that you 
made any attempt to read or to understand what he wrote.

I really think that what you wrote was out of line.

And *I* say this as someone who approaches this all as a member of 
the Irish National Body, as someone who is often at loggerheads with 
members of the UTC.

I will say again what I said the other day:

For what it is worth, as a linguist, indeed as a linguist celebrated 
for defending minority communities and all of those poor folk who 
don't make anybody any money, I agree with every word Ken Whistler 
has just written. I've been involved in watching this tussle since 
May 2005. I'm still on the side of the linguists and I still wish the 
protocol people would listen to the linguists.

Yours sincerely,
Michael Everson *
