SUO: Re: Standard Upper Ontology Procedures
Receipt of your suggestion is acknowledged.
To find out what IEEE can do, email their Help-Desk at
firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at 732-562-5439.
I can't image making this an open list (where anyone can post
without subscribing), but maybe IEEE filters can keep out the spam. As
list owner, I get plenty of 'Non-member' posting alerts, so I don't think
we want to allow these messages to get through.
As for your request for objections, I don't think anyone will
object to your exploring this avenue. If you others can develop a viable
proposal, we can then see if the group wants to make the change.
