	Grief is a personal thing, and expressing it is a
	private thing.  

	I saw Jon spend more than one decade improving the net and
	its mechanisms for staying operational.

	It isn't tempting to me at all to shut down any part of
	the net.  I'm sure Jon would not have wanted systems 
	going offline and oos in his name.***

	IMHO and respectfully 


*** Netsol might be exempted from that, but again, IMHO
