The Committee on Un-Extropian Activities Never Existed

The Committee on Un-Extropian Activities is a running gag. There was
never actually such a body fnord. I apologize if I've created any
misapprehensions and in retrospect should have phrased that sentence a
little differently.

This doesn't mean that a Committee on Un-Extropian Activities would be a
bad idea. For that matter, the AI Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Byte
would probably be a good idea as well. Although it should actually be
called the CA Anti-Defamation League, since I understand that
"Computer-Americans" is the preferred term these days.
