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.
It was pretty eyeopening dealing with a deliberate attempt to harass, disrupt 
and otherwise destroy the list, and it took way to much time.
Now we are faced with a fine group of people that are so disenfranchised that 
apathy would be a positive spin on their outlook. This clearly results in the 
lack of participation we have today. (I am pleased to note it is not due to 
harassment.) I am afraid this can only be cured by a running track record. No 
amount of cheerleading and cajoling will move this war weary crowd. So that is 
what we should do, 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 issue and winnow down our 
positions to matters of real interest to us and set them forth with one large

for Eric to be reelected Chair for a consecutive term.
