  I never suggested we cancel ECHO either.

  He was suggesting that "HEO fanatics" were asking that it be cancelled,
then in the same breath using the term "STUPID." Grammatically "it" 
is referring to the "act" not the people, however it is one inference that
could be made from his statement, given the overall context. I would like
to think he did not really mean that and I was simply pointing out that
perhaps he should re-state how he said it. 

  I have also come to the conclusion that it would be illogical to cancel it,
based on facts that Bob has presented to me in private email. But It is STUPID
to base ones actions on missing facts or on emotion.  I have politely suggested
to Bob, again in private email, that these facts be shared with the membership
of AMSAT in general. I feel that is up to Bob, not me.

  This is an obvious ad hominem.
