Okay, but later in this mail you express an interest in being "for". Do 
you want to be "for" or to abstain?

I think Pauls more explicit stance is exactly where we should be going...

I disagree, but in a way I think you'll agree with ;-) I think the 
majority or Zope.org should be neutral in terms of competitive advantage 
to any organisation. But, I'd like to see a broad, rich, FAIR section 
which covers all commercial stuff equally. I think this thing is 
currently labelled "ZSP", but the current one-page-waste-of-time 
belittles this.

Many moons ago, while DC still still stood for Digital Creations, I 
proposed zope.com to be for commercial activities, zope.net to be for 
hosting providers and zope.org to be for community resources. This is, 
of course, no longer possible, but how about keeping zope.org for 
community stuff and have zope.net be the kind of thing Mark, Joel and 
myself are yearning for to support the NETWORK of the commercial Zope world?
