My main point was that the proxy limit does not apply to determining quorum or to voting on resolutions; only to voting in elections.  However, I was also under the mistaken impression that the limit came from the election guidelines, whereas it actually comes from the bylaws.

If we have proxy limits at all, then I think that they should be applied equally to all relevant situations (determining quorum, and any vote my Members).

However, I am not convinced that there should be any limit.
