Dear all,
  I had hoped to be past this phase of rules and have a full set of positions 
filled by this time. What can I say, it takes a little longer to adopt founding 
documents than I thought.
  Creating and exercising reasonable controls on the list is a great 
  Now we are faced with a dwindling fine group of people that are so 
disenfranchised that apathy would be a positive spin on their outlook. This 
clearly has resulted in the lack of participation we have today. (I am pleased 
to note it is not due to harassment.) I am afraid yet heartened that this can 
be cured by a running track record. No amount of cheerleading and cajoling will 
move this war weary crowd. So that what we should do, is put one foot infront 
of the other, and make a track that others can follow.
  IDNO and IU. These concepts must be brought to the forefront and lifted as 
high as they can go. I see pros and cons of starting with either one. But it 
was a founding factor in beginning this GA and it cannot be ignored. The 
aptitude and skill with which it is presented will have to be spot on and 
support must be clear and convincing from the bottom up. And then it is going 
to have to be bulldogged right on through with no "skipping over" for an 
answer. Capture is not an option. I do believe that with or without 
restructuring this can be done, but not for free. It will take hours of 
concerned contributors' time.
  RAAs, WHOIS, gTLDs etc. etc. Have been dealt with by the GA in a reactionary 
mode. We have contributed greatly to outside lists and groups and forces. This 
has proven to be an error. Our voices are splintered and cast into the wind. We 
should begin our own deliberations here on clear issues and winnow down our 
positions to matters of real interest to us and set them forth with one large 
  I want these things to come to pass. And so I gladly accept the Nomination 
and Second to the Chair of the GA.

Hi Debbie,

I agree that Eric has been doing a wonderful job and I'll second the motion 
for Eric to be reelected Chair for a consecutive term.
