<font size=3>Just to sober up the situation. I (for one) think the 
situation is sad. WF has created several valuable and useful resources 
for thru and other hikers. The way he manages the ATML has resulted in 
schism and conflict, far removed from his earlier credo for the ATML of 
friendship and respect. He seems to have lost the focus of his work, to 
the point that the framework is more important than the structure. <br> 
It is WF's right as the provider of the resource to deal with it in any 
fashion he desires. Several of us disagree with his recent strategies, 
and have either taken his advice and left, or otherwise become refugees 
of ATML. I think he's been standing too close to the monitor lately, and 
needs to take a deep breath and step back a bit, for his own good as well 
as the community of hikers.<br>
As with any opinion. its worth exactly what you paid for it.<br>
