Several of the people who have replied that they want to be on the
call are members of two or three person "firms".  Many of those two
and three people firms have been involved in Drupal for a year or

one of them, so one might classify those firms as "dabbling in
drupal".  Yet as far as I can tell, you only gave the brush-off to
Jason (and privately to me since I responded in private that I'd like
to attend).  It's because you don't like my haircut isn't it?

A few days ago you "de.licio.used" my blog about steps to take after
installing Drupal.  Should I ask that you not use that resource
because my intended audience with it was lone consultants?  Because I
really did write that for my friend who is a lone consultant.

Among other things Drupal is community creation system - let's create
some inclusive community, eh?
