Re: [ga] Raising the number of ballots cast...

Bradley and all,

  I see several problems with this methodology and "Bot Product"
of Kents.

1. )  Does not provide for secret balloting
2.) Does not provide for non-refutable ballot checking
3.) I not a broad enough method as it only provides for votes to come
     from members of the DNSO GA
4.) Is too easily rigged to produce a certain result.
5.) Does not provide for oversight by a neutral party.
6.) Is untested in a reasonable manner.

  These are just a few of the problems I see.  Does anyone else
have any other concerns or improvements that could make this BOT
of Kents viable are legitimate?
