 Why do you think I want you to read the GNS papers? Where is that
coming from? Are you paranoid? 
I did read secushare pages btw. I even watched the latest Datenspur
video. That is why I know you do not need GNS. You are doing it
differently. And it probably works without GNS. I am no expert in
social/secushare. But apparently you think you have some kind of golden
key for the future internet (if only people had to pay a euro every
time they claim that). 
I also never said GNS is doing it the right way. Or even better. In
fact if you read your mails it is your claim to do everything better
and right. Actually that is your argument: "We are doing it the right
way and if you do something else you are wrong and if you don't agree
you are ignorant." (paraphrasing)
Now if you read your mails again and don't see the hubris in them I
cannot help you.

What I know now and took away from this is that GNS is doing something
different and you think that the approach is fundamentally wrong in
your use case.
