You mean, for the "reason" of having not, at that time, yet gotten around
to writing OSD provision #10?  That reason would seem to no longer apply.

It's funny how many of these Web 2.0 firms seem to think the OSD is just
a series of talking points, that can be selectively ignored.

Rick Moen     woman she meets, and then teams up with three complete strangers
rick at       to kill again."  -- Rick Polito's That TV Guy column,
