I only wish you'd quite making the FALSE claim that I didn't.  Of course,
all that discussion was in secret, so I don't imagine the public will
ever see it.  Yet another example of why the current process is broken:
EVERYTHING is secret.

Yes, apparently I have to make a public embarrassment out of it in order
to get any action taken.

But really, it's not good enough.  Even if those problems with the bylaws
are "fixed," all the points in my original statement still stand.
