Thank you Joe

I'd like to chime in and bring my own concerns since I won't make it to the
meeting. My primary concern is about the Viewer Directory and here are my
questions :

- Will registering a TPV to the Viewer Directory become mandatory one day ?
If so, how can we be absolutely certain that our RL names and info won't
suddenly appear in clear on the webpage without our prior consent, even
after registering ?

- Why the need for RL info at all since LL already knows how to join us in
case of a problem ? Why do we have to enter these data again ?

- There is no privacy policy on this particular webpage, it is just said
that LL "may" make them available. I'd like to point out that this is
strictly illegal in most countries (especially in Europe), LL needs our
explicit written agreement prior to publishing our data. Registering to a
webpage with a "may" or "may not" is not a written agreement.

Thank you,
