Topic: CSA & CSA rules existence >was Re: Re[2]: +12 step programs for drinkers of bad coffee :-) (2 msgs / 81 lines)

Proof! You want proof! You can't handle the proof! (or was that truth;-)
Does the CSA exist? Do CSA rules exist? But of course.
Reminds me of a story about a Philosophy Professor. He pushed his students
hard. They looked forward to the coming final exam with trepidation. The day
of the final the Professor walked into the room, placed his chair on top of
his desk, then said "prove the chair is not on top of the desk" and left the
room. That was their final exam. The students toiled writing page after page
of reasoning, arguments, & theorems. All except for one student. After just
a couple minutes he walked to the front of the room and turned a single
sheet of paper face down on the Professor's desk ending his exam. Later when
the tests were graded and handed back that student had the highest score.
His final exam answer was simply "what chair?".
The point? Though to the best of my knowledge the CSA does not exist as a
legal entity yet it exists. Especially in the hearts and minds of this list!
It's a matter of perception...
Oh, if the CSA is a 12 Step Program, and since I wrote the CSA 12 (&13th)
Steps which were accepted without debate or challenge (adapted without
permission of course :) you are a member when you say are as is the case
with all 12 Step Programs. Unless of course another CSA member says you
aren't, with just cause of course :-) And of course unless that rejection,
dismissal, suspension etc. isn't challenged or forgiven by another CSA
member...;-)

Ok, thanks Mike!  That cleared it right up...  ;>)
