[ga] jeff williams / this list.
is there any reason why jeff williams' emails never have a "Sender:
firstname.lastname@example.org" line in the header like all the other email@example.com
mails? or any other distinguishing characteristics? most everyone else's
mails have header lines like:

the lack of relevant mailing-list headers makes these mails difficult to

Joanna and all assembly members,
Although a poll on certain issues might be helpful, I believe that such a poll
would require or should require the approval of the Assembly members
by vote before moving forward. It would also likely better serve if such
a poll would be conducted by professional pollsters, such a vote.com
for instance. As far as I know there are no professional pollsters
in our membership. If there are please speak up!
In that professional pollsters cost money it would seem that the first
order of business would be for the DNSO GA membership start
getting it's financial house in order.
On the other hand, simple polls on specific questions could be conducted
without the need of professional pollsters assistance. However I don't
believe that is what you are considering in this instance.
