Sorry if I took you to literally. Also as I already told you in private
I do not criticize you or your work. Please don't be offended just
because you are the chair of EMEA. Thanks

Maybe someone else of the people who voted for 128 EUR could explain it
to me then? I'm not talking about 128 or 129 Euros now but the general
height of the fee.

There are several people on this list who say the fee is very high so I
don't understand why this hasn't been considered by the founding members
