I hope you did not leave the GA boat yet, like I seem to understand from
your message is your intention.
If it is true that we are having an unacceptable noise/signal ratio lately,
this is also the fault of all of us who feel responsible for the "signal".
There are issues being now brought to the GA's attention: the election of a
Chair (which is a first evolutionary step), the discussion on the criteria
for membership and related fees, the ever present issue on the relationship
between the council and the AL, and probably more.
If we can't do much for lowering the noise level without raising (true or
false) issues of censorship, we can at least improve the ratio by raising
the signal level over the noise ;>).
Please help us doing this with concrete proposals and comments on the issues
above, and on all what you feel relevant to the GA list.
