Superb article.

ISO keeps whining about "personal attacks", when the facts clearly work against their defense of their handling of DIS-29500. Good work - just keep responding with the facts. That's all we need to do.

I work to the ISO-17025 standard in my business, and I consider it a good and well-developed standard. But after witnessing the DIS-29500 fiasco, I'll never see ISO-17025 (or any other ISO standard) in the same light again. I guess standards-setting is something like sausage -- if it matters to you, best not to watch it being made.
