Point of clarification:

RBL is a registered service mark of MAPS, refering to the Realtime

This has **nothing** to do with us. At All.
Correction: Other than the these two things:

a) Paul Vixie is a cofounder, chairman and CEO of MAPS LLC and at same

Paul has zero involvement at MAPS. He hasn't had any involvement with MAPS for quite a while. AFAIK, he is President of PAIX, not CTO of MFN.

b) Dave Rand is a cofounder and executive director of MAPS LLC and at
same time EVP of MFN.
Dave is the Executive Director of MAPS. He is no longer at MFN. Hasn't been for a quite a while.

Don't get me wrong, I like MAPS and I think ORBS/MAPS flamewars are
silly. (And certainly hoping I'm not starting one now). But a little
bit of honesty never hurt anyone, and its a bit disingenious to say
that there's absolutely nothing in common between Above/MFN and MAPS.
I am never anything BUT painfully honest. There is nothing disingenuous about this at all. There is *no* relationship between the management of MAPS and that of, MFN, PAIX or any other entity.
