Re: [ga] Thank you.
Thomas and all assembly members,
Thank you Thomas for your "Positions" here as a prelude to
addressing some general issues regarding this forum. I am sure
some here find several of these ideas helpful and insightful.
I have a few points that I would like to comment to the
areas you covered below. (See more below)

I hope by stating the GA wishes, you mean ALL of the members
of the GA here? Please advise.

I believe the current rules require three monitors, do they not?

Good point. However you realize that determining what is and what is
and "Entertainer" as you put it is very subjective. As far as I know,
from the current rules for this forum, there isn't a definition that such
