Posted Mon Jul 21, 2003, 11:46pm Subject: re: Why not in the States?
Because of sentiments like this:
"In the US, we tend to favor =self-government.= I can't imagine supporting a movement for an official =government= standard in the US. Certification needs to be voluntary, and to come through the SCAA - lets leave Big Brother out of it!"
I'm not saying that way of thinking is wrong, but it does make a nationally recognised standard harder to set up.
