A very interesting development Christopher. But members reading this may be
confused. So will provide here a brief summary.

Three days ago I faxed the Principle at Christopher's school the "Gymnasium
Querfurt High School" a letter and supporting documentation with respect to
Christopher's conduct in this conference - a copy of this fax is available
for members to read at the following URL:


As a result of my letter meetings were held and the school is now doing its
best to distance itself from Christopher's projects.

The school has confirmed with me that they will be replying to my fax by
letter. We will see then what they have to say.

I do hope the school will apologize to the members here for Christopher's

And in closing I want to take this opportunity to ask Christopher in public
to apologize to the members for his conduct. I have asked Christopher in
private correspondence to apologize to the members. To date no apology has
been received and if Christopher can't provide one I hope the school does.
