More lies from Robert Hansen.

Everything that had been promised had materialised - and more. Each participant also got FREE copies of the OPMS prototype software. Several of the participants also joined the YahooGroup "Towards Democracy".

The participants (and their Companies) wanted more Workshops.

Refund their money? What for? Do tell, Robert Hansen.

Kindly re-read the post to which you're replying. In particular the part stating that I'm not about to jump to your command.

That is the way we do it here in India as well.

However, those who're qualified to demand verifiable references do not include, how do you say it in your country, 'kibitzers', which - if it means what I believe it does - you've thus far amply proven yourself to be. (Free Online Dictionary: "to kibitz" intr.v. kib·itzed, kib·itz·ing, kib·itz·es Informal. 1. To look on and offer unwanted, usually meddlesome advice to others).

But the REAL heart of the matter is that I'm not about to jump at your command.
