[ga] Finally, some sanity...


This bickering about what each of us thinks generates nothing substantive
at all. The list as a whole has a voice but the individual participants
choose not to use it.

A simple issue needs to be addressed, quickly discussed, and then voted
upon so the the will of the GA is known. No, not all people on this list
are likely to agree with any single issue, but the list is not for venting
our individual platforms - it is for those of us who have them to get
together and collectively develop "ONE" from the various possibilities.

This is called democracy. Not Joop Teernstra's definition, but he doesn't
count anyway.
