Mark, et al,
I am not attempting to "single out" Mr. Trinkwon ... but
it's hard to avoid the fact that the current issue raised
by Roger relates to his attendance credits ...
Let me make it perfectly clear ... I would hold the same
view no matter whose attendance credit was at issue.

Unless I missunderstand, the issue is "Did Mr. Trinkwon sign
in as attending 802.16 and/or 802.20 meeting slots during
which he was actually in 802.18?" If I missunderstand the
issue, I apologize for my confusion, but that is my current
understanding of the issue based on Roger's message.

I would expect that others would be treated the same as well.
If there is any conclusive evidence of "double-dipping" *I*
would personally advocate voiding attendance credit in BOTH
groups in order to discourage the practice in the future.
(Again, this does NOT only apply to Mr. Trinkwon but to anyone
else as well.)
I hope that clairifies my view on the matter.
