      Not really.  You have said time and time again, in the AHIMA meetings 
  and on this list, that you believe that consent is often obtained under 
  conditions where people don't have a real choice (coercion is present).

     I never said you did, or did not.

        This is a public discussion  list which is largley focused on S. 
  1360.  You make statements to this list to influence people about the 
  legislation.  I do too.  If you are not comofortable with being quoted at 
  all, without your permission, then don't post.  (If the quote is unfair 
  or out of context, please set the record straight).
