Actually, Kent, ALL non-members have been asked to refrain from
posting while the members are preparing to discuss some matters that
will be voted on soon.  You were not singled out there.

The discussion legitimacy of a NEED for a constituency belongs,
perhaps, here.  But which organization better meets the needs of the
people who will make up that constituency, is strictly for those who
are working for such a constituency.  Someone who opposes the
recognition of such a constituency has no place being involved in
which structure is the most appropriate for becoming that
