  Yes Timo, I am listening. Not just to a line or two, but to the whole
message. I disagree with the idea of slapping the Region until it
presents unified action, since that action just might be to slap back. I
disagree with the idea that one can stop a discussion just because he's
upset, or doesn't like where it's going. It is possible, after all to
convince people of the value of your ideas without such tactics, and
once you've pulled it off, those who follow you will be there when you
need them. The SCA is a volunteer organisation, and there's no way a
warlord, or king for that matter, can force me to follow him. There will
always be another formation in the line that would take my shield and
sword. The only way for a leader to gain my loyalty is for him to gain
my respect, and he'll not do that by saying I, or anyone else, doesn't
matter. Because for the SCA to work, we all HAVE to matter to one
