Aside of that, running off and asking random people random questions is not
leading anywhere. The reason why we discuss these things in detail on the
list is that we have a proper (legaly correct and conclusive) question to
ask the people we want to contact. We spent a massive amount of time to
start this and figure out proper proceedings. The least thing we need right
now is (well meant) actionism behind our back.

Thanks,
