With the utmost respect, Sir ...

I thank you profusely for your efforts in cryonics.
I'm happy to hear that your life is bringing you so
much satisfaction these days. Your chastisments
regarding what you view as masturbatory online
discussions seem harsh to me but I sense that
harshness is more related to your frustrations with
the lack of funding and slow progress on the research
front. It's my view that Cryonet is and should be a
community. It would be less so if all we ever talked
about were highly rational and pragmatic topics. I've
found the identity discussions and others in the same
ilk to be helpful. I thank all those who've helped to
stretch and clarify my mind. 

You rightly claim, I believe, that people prefer to
build personal wealth by investing their disposable
assets over giving that money to a charity. Why is it
that no one attempts to fund cryonics research efforts
through common stock offerings? I think there's plenty
of money among cryonicists, but obviously they need a
more attractive offer.

Best regards,
