Not really.
My point is that we cannot just pick the Roberts Rules "as they are", 
because they have been written for a different context.

The consequence is, IMHO, not that we should dismiss the matter but, 
quite the opposite, that we should define a specically designed set. 
This in reply to a previous posting that stated that RR is good "as is",
 and that it can be used starting now without modification.

The very fact that you did serious work on it means that you also 
believe that they have to be adapted to fit:
- today's reality (Y2K+)
- the different medium (online debate)

I'm sorry for you, but we agree ;>).
