Aubrey's suggestion is a good one as such a joint page would take the type of

approach similar to that of a cryonics-interested independent body. A line by 
comparison of organization and service categories in a cooperative effort would

eliminate the use of "better", "best" and other comparative adjectives, except 
both parties agree that it is factual and appropriate.

However, a problem exists that Joe Waynick and Ben Best may not have the ability
make such decisions for Alcor and CI despite both of them being chief executive

officer of their respective organizations. Either one or both may be overruled 

such a joint comparison page by their Board of Directors. IMO, the output of a 

committee of both Boards to create such a comparison page would be only an 
expenditure of time with no agreed comparison page at all.
