I am wondering what has happened - why does it appear that the classification project has been abandoned?

I have received a response to my first post, in another thread, that there was a managerial disruption. If that is so, I believe it would be a good idea to begin understanding the problems and there eventual solutions, unless of course it is believed that classification is irrelevant and inconsequential to society. I believe it is quite the opposite - I have devoted my thinking to classification for the past three years, and I believe classification is specifically involved with social order, and subsequently, classification deserves the up most political attention.

Who are you, and what is your commitment to classification?

Politics? How about anarchy in a jar?

Hey, if you want to blame it on her - fine. But nobody picked up the ball, and that brings the blame back to you. Except me, of course - I took on the responsibility, and look at the resistance - nobody wants to do anything except moan and groan about the leadership.

So, get over yourselves.
