In re-reading our rules today, may I take this opportunity to remind the
Chair that there has possibly been an oversight in that, I believe, an
election for the position of Chair should have been called in September
2008.  Perhaps this would prove an opportune moment to elect or re-elect the
Chair and revise the list rules as appropriate.

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 voice.

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.
