Hurrah for Jim, someone is going to divert some of the stuff you have to sort through...ALWAYS DEEPLY APPRECIATE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE LEVEL AND SANITY OF THE CORAL LIST.

I have been watching the Jobs debate...there are many reasons for limiting nationalities whcih have to do with funding to only those country men/women of the same as the donor of the money - directly/indirectly.

As a diversion, how about those who have used the coral list to get references and information for their use in the commercial world of the "marine consultant" who never returns even a status copy as to how the info / references were used and how it protected even one square meter of coral reef.... everytime I see a Halcrow, Fugro, etc.....in an address I wince...or become upset...and take it out on the next Halcrow, Fugro, etc. project I can find....
