Re: [discuss] Next Names Council Meeting

Javier and all,

  The problem here Javier is that there are not clearly stated rules of
discussion in the june 25th announcement.  In that this is a public
forum, and you seem to be inordinately "Concerned"  with disruption
issues, these rules evidently need to be in place and clearly stated
so that those attending will be able to determine what is considered
"Disruptive" and what is not.  It simply cannot be an arbitrary decision.

  Given you propensity to shade the truth and misrepresent the facts,
as has been demonstrated just very recently, you would not be a
good moderator.  someone that is neutral should be selected to
take on this task or someone that volunteers would even be better.
