I guess everyone forgets my calls for that a long time ago. Much less
that I was trying to go through the bylaws section by section. So all
could feel they were involved and had some say.

I am so sick of all this crap. Which explains why I resigned.

Now we have someone from infra and elections commenting on voting. I
hope action is taken to provide resources for such. Because if the
trustees wanted to call a vote on such matters right now. Could they?
How long before the voting could take place? How long would it last for?
Who is eligible to vote? What if the vote outcome does not reflect the
desire of the outspoken minority? Will it be accepted when it's not now?
What will the appeal process to voting be?

Funny how bylaws don't address the voting decision making process. But
no one is taking issue there :)

Talk is cheap and I am soo sick of it. Show me the $, take action, then
speak.
