I realize that this is a late reply to this note, but I think that it 
pertains to the most recent thread regarding copyrights. Daniel if you 
meant it when you wrote it and if you still mean it, perhaps this would 
be a good time to help direct the activities of Jonathan and others.

If they are going to contact the copyright owners of the copyrighted 
material that is on Crosswire (in order to confirm their former 
permission) as representing Crosswire, I think it might be wise to 
create "official" correspondence for this matter.
