    Not a single defense of the current structure from the current directors. Not even on why it was set up that way.

    Hello? Chuck, Mike?

    David, I agree. It’s a bit disconcerting to me that they haven’t chimed in too.

    I agree that I'd like to see Chuck and Michael addressing this to the community. That said, Chuck did reply to me via PM yesterday with "I'll get back to you on this soon..." I will, of course, keep the members informed of any relevant discussions.

    With his approval, I just added Paul Xifaris's name to the members supporting this proposal. Other members who wish to add their name and share their support publicly can message me and I'll be happy to add them as well.

    I can assure you that is not the case. As I posted several days ago, my concerns pre-date Frank's suspension by significant time. I first became aware of the fact that we were now a 501c7 non-profit, and most likely in violation of IRS regulations regarding member control, several month ago - a situation that I discussed with others and asked a professional to investigate back in June. Frank's banning was coincidental in its timing and provided an opportunity to go public with my (and now our) concerns. Nothing more.

    With his approval, I just added Paul Norris's name to the members supporting this proposal. Other members who wish to add their name and share their support publicly can message me and I'll be happy to add them as well.

    No this is NOT just to get Frank back. What happened to him may have boiled the kettle over.
    After all even before this occurred he was not a member. The thread for Frank is separate from this governance issue.
    The proposal, and it is a proposal, not a demand as so many believe.
    I think the membership is at least deserving of an explanation from the current board as to why the organization is structured to not give members voting powers.

    When you have the title “Free ESR!” on your profile page, sort of sounds like a demand? Excuse me if I’m wrong?
