Thanks for the info. A lot of people want to ignore our challenge.
Politicians in bed with DRE makers aren't anxious to help us. A lot of
elections people that sleep with vendors don't want to promote the OVC.
Vendors of proprietary systems aren't anxious, for some reason, to let
people know about an organization that will give away something they want to
charge a lot of money for.

Eventually, they'll have to answer. The story about the OVC will break
sooner or later -- sooner I hope.
