What surprises me is the lack of recognition on the
IAEP mailman membership list, but I've had run ins
with Luke before, most recently being left out
of a dinner supposedly closing the ClassActs
Book sprint, after his sparse attendance...

Then a frozen membership list, first before a call
for elections.

Usually there are voter registration before voting,
but ACORN does stuff like that round here ;-/

But in the US, we also have elections
determined in Florida,
with brothers of presidents up for elections
seemingly determining the results...

And LoseVote machines...

So if it really is community based,
how is the community involved?

Besides having our hands tied,
and not being able to vote,
as determined not a member
before even announced???

But like Yama, we were working on
FLOSSManauals.net ClassActs
all that week when things were being frozen.

And while I'm a penguin supporter,
it's a little cold out here,
with all the other huddled non voting member
