But it doesn't /say/ it's optional! Newcomers wouldn't know it, and if they're put off by those kind of questions will just leave - not play with it to see if they can get to the download page without entering the info. As to View, we're not allowed to spread the word anyway because we've agreed "to keep all information about this release completely confidential"... Or does Carl's "I need your help... REBOL needs your help. Now is the time to go for it. Start working on REBOL view scripts today. Publish them today on your site or on someone else's site. Tell your friends about REBOL. Tell your press contacts about REBOL. Get them helping out." with the launch of View pre-Beta5 over-ride the above?
