Ramin!  You are so - .... right!

>Would it make sense to call another public meeting?  i find that much

But there hasn't in fact been a public meeting where the public can express
an open and steering offering to ADNA.  There is no point holding a public
meeting if the Board of ADNA will do as it wishes irresective.  We might as
well not attend.

Oh this is so true. I've found that even in an IRC chat the other night the
level of respect increased as the discussion progressed.

I agree. I've seen some good points from everyone, but to date, no one is
prepared to compromise, although I always seem to bend more and more.

>sorry if this offends anyone. i will shut up now. 

Please Ramin, don't.  You raise far too many good points.

The only one you haven't solved is how the public and those who perhaps
don't see eye to eye with the current ADNA board get a say that will
actually hold.

I guess that's why there are two parties in parliment.
