Thanks for doing this. There are obviously a LOT of concerns. I'm not sure
if Linden Lab is willing to do so, but sharing any additional insights about
why certain parts of the TPVP were drafted the way they are, might help.

My ask, of the community:  This has the potential to be a meeting with a lot
of emotions. We won't make any progress on this if emotions run too hot, or
the discussion becomes unprofessional... degrades into personal attacks on
character. And if it breaks down into a shouting match, then it's a waste of
time for all of us. So please, let's do this in a professional manner.

One way you can help me understand this issue, please, would be to be
willing to say what the impact is on you, on your business, on your
customers, etc.  I think being able to quantify the effects of a policy, a
decision, a direction... always help. My opinion:  Disagreeing in principle
because it's "wrong" is one thing; being able to relate what the impact on
your involvement in Second Life will mean a lot more.

- JB

P.S. To the list: Let's not try to make this a "legal" meeting, ok? Because
if you do, it won't happen.
