ABSTRACT

This contribution points out some flaws in the proposed change to the first
line of the ATM Forum Poem.

NOTICE

This contribution has been prepared to assist the ATM Forum. This poem is
offered to the Forum as a basis for discussion and is not a binding proposal
on the participating member companies. The material contained in these verses
is subject to change in rhyme and/or meter after more study. 

Each of the participating member companies specifically reserves the right
to add to, or amend, the stanzas contained herein.

*****************************************************************************

We believe that it would be a grave mistake for the Forum to change the first line of it's poem to read:

"My love is like a red, red jello"
since years of dedicated research have demonstrated that only "Electric Lime Green (ELG)" jello can be safely used in the presence of high speed communications equipment.

Graphs comparing the results of spilling dangerous red jello and the much safer ELG jello onto powered circuit boards will be presented at the November meeting of the ATM Forum Technical Committee.
