False. Dont' you work on Friays? Why have not sent your coments, or
(If you are interested, it was a holiday here. But this has not
prevented many of us form keep working out the proposal during the weekend)

Perfect. So might we infer that you agree with it?

You must be confused. All decisions came form the majority of the NC.
All. the convention-style, the deadlines for coments, its new
extension, its futher extension once again....
I think that Dennis had your proxy. In any case, i would advise that
you revise the above statement and specify whether you think that the
NC can adopt decisins by majority/if you are interested NO ONE oppsoed
the time scale; ask Dennis who was chairing for more details).
Unless you mean that complete agreement from all presnet members (a
large majority( of the NC is "top.-down" and your individual opinions
In any cae, I won0't reply any further mail form you or any other
person regarindg process. We were talking about the eltoral process.
Amadeu, felling insulted by your assumptions that those taking part in
the telconfs and working with fellow members in making proposals are
"imposing" things on those who don't take the time to attend or work
within the agreed timeschedules. Agreed, not imposed by anyone. Except
the NC as a whole
