i've no doubt that the invitations were made in good faith, but might
they have more diplomatically been made through private email??...the
contentious nature of the newsgroup lends the air of challenge to any
such invitation made here...both the decision and the grounds for
making the decision to accept or not accept such invitation is
nobody's business but yuri' demand that he make public his
answer to a misplaced invitation is an unwarrented intrusion into his
personal affairs...please cease this activity...
