Re: v 5.4 - from Dave Mann
I am very happy with the version you produced, Dave. I will make only one pedantic comment, below. I do not believe the letter needs to be further shortened. I think it is ready to go. --spaf Pedantic comment (my editorial side coming out :-) The word "since" means "time since" and not causality. Colloquial usage has led many people to use it as a causal tie, but it is still not grammatically correct. The word "since" should be replaced by either "because" or "as" in all the places in the letter where it is used. E.g., ... endanger the security of their computer systems since computer users in those countries... ==> ...endanger the security of their computer systems because computer users in those countries... and ... is counter to that goal, since it would adversely impact security... ==> ... is counter to that goal, as it would adversely impact security...
