Indeed, I have supported several policy proposals in the past.

If I believe a proposal has merit or is good for the community, I support it.

If I believe it will not improve the situation compared to the status quo, I will
oppose it.

This is my understanding of how the process is supposed to work. Unlike some, I will
almost always state my reasons for supporting or opposing a policy at least once.

Please, Jackson and Noah, explain to me where I have gone astray and failed to
perform my part in the policy development process. I will endeavor to do better.

Thanks, David. Your kind words are appreciated.

I was not aware of any situation in which I had spoken as though I had any authority
to decide as obviously I have no such authority. I state my opinion on proposals
and when I feel it is necessary, I will also call attention to what I believe are
out-of-order attempts to circumvent the proper due process.

Calling for a fast track on this proposal is an example of an out-of-order attempt
to circumvent the proper due process, IMHO, and I don’t seem to be the only one who
has that opinion. Indeed, even the CEO has questioned if an emergency exists to justify
invoking section 3.6.

Indeed, I have the utmost respect and willingness to listen to anyone on this list
and I read nearly every post carefully. You will note that my posts nearly always
talk about the merits or lack of merit of a proposal and not about the authors or
other commenters, even when said authors or commenters respond with personal
criticisms of me.
