The reason for a vote for who would act as the connection between
GW and the list, was simply because Andy & Jervis asked us to, so they
could answer one batch at a time, instead of everyone mailing their
questions directly to them. Allen rewrote the questions we sent him
to be easy yes/no variants, since that's what they asked for.

If JJ & AC don't mind, I can't see any problem about you sending them
questions or whatever.

Hope this clears things up. I think it was a good arrangement and made
everybody happy. JJ & AC didn't have to answer the same questions over
and over, redundancy was instead removed by Allen and our sometimes
vague questions were made clear and concise by Allen (which didn't
stop the Primearchs from giving insubstantial answers now and then,
despite our efforts to prevent it :-).

Luck, Gunnar!
