  However, we continue to represent ourselves to the IRS, under the pains and 
penalties of perjury, as a non-profit, tax-exempt, educational organization. See 
my opinion letter available on the web for details. The BoD got an outside law 
firm to research the issue, but did not get an answer on whether our pratices, 
as opposed to our paperwork, complies with the law.
  I will continue to assert that we are and must be an educational, and thus 
reasonablly accurate, organization until we give up or change the federal 
tax-exempt status.
