[Discuss] BLU's SEO

Hey John/Everyone,

John is right!  What would be unethical about presenting the positive
message of the BLU?  =P  Worst case scenario we might gain more members
which would benefit the FOSS community.  We should look at this an one
way to that goal.  Is anyone else with me?  Can we just start a task
force on this and discuss it at the next meeting.  Any thoughts on this?

Have a great day,
