Sincere apologies for my awkward statement. defines
"doughty" as "marked by stouthearted courage; brave". I wasn't
questioning the knowledge or passion of folks holding views that
differ from my own. Rather I was attempting to question whether
anybody actively participating on this list - holding whatever view -
is also participating in ITU discussions.

I see that Mr. Cowan has also parsed my admittedly opaque remarks.
