I'm afraid I'm pretty tired of being the final "go to guy" for things to be done. Because that often means I'm the only one that does that stuff. There's no doubt plenty of things that I'm the "best fit for". Does that mean I have the enthusiasm, time or whatever to do them - no, it does not, nor does it mean it wouldn't be valuable for someone else to educate themselves on issues, and possibly give a valuable alternative viewpoint. I've already given many many ideas on what users, developers, etc, etc can do, including a variety of plans for funding. I don't really care to hash them out here again, and _again_ debate them ad nasuem. If it were true that I'd had much more cooperation the first time around, and if it were true I'd financially broken even, and if it were true that there weren't still people out there hell-bent on spreading misinformation, then no doubt my attitude would be different.

If someone else wants to put together a plan, then by all means to so. But you certainly shouldn't say I haven't said much on this topic before. Here's are recent posts to usenet on it, which were, of course, duly ignored:
