thank you for conducting that poll. Like most other people, I vote Yes,
No, No.
I suspect that a number of those 100 participants who were in the group
at some point felt, like me, that the poll was a "given", thus not
bothering to reply. I have "moved my attention on" to other projects,
and felt that re-opening the subject was  likely to be a step backwards
for everyone, especially considering the amount of discussion which had
taken place about all of these subjects. How much blood can you get out
of a stone? :-)

Warmest regards,
