Bret, you have a tone and reputation that effect your ability to communicate
with this community. Questioning the actions and decisions of the committee
happens very regularly, as any reader of this list would know - you may want
to revisit the thread about the LA Grants Scheme for an example. You tend to
get a negative response because you are not seen to contribute positively,
and you do not present your points of view in a positive or diplomatic ways.
