Most questions from "visitors" to this news-group tend to be about
using NTP software rather than the actual NTP protocol.

The regular participants, on the other hand, discuss the NTP protocol in
the context of The NTP Reference Implementation from www.ntp.org / UDEL.

That's our choice. Not yours.

This news-group has, historically, been focused on The NTP Reference
Implementation from www.ntp.org / UDEL. So it is natural that vast
majority of the participants in this news-group use and recommend The
NTP Reference Implementation.

You are free to participate and reccomend solutions which are acceptable
in your world view. However you have no business telling us that we need
to change our focus.
