I, and I expect many others on the net, would like to express my thanks to
John for the work he has done over nearly six years in this newsgroup.

In that time the group has been valuable in raising public awareness in the
standards process, providing wide, easy and rapid access to pertinent 
information, and providing a forum for much valuable discussion of standards

Many people have made contributions to the group, but John has held it

Thank you!
