Whatever brevity of association anyone might claim, the fact is that we
previously allowed them, and now we don't. I repeat, it's a shame we no
longer desire them.

It might have been useful for you to say that during the discussion
leading up to this. On the other hand -- and this was my point -- there
were other changes to status quo that hadn't been spelled out, like
removal of life members.
By the way, I was gratified -- and should have said so before now --
that the details which I had been requesting were eventually provided.
I'm still not sure why it needed a song and a dance from me to get it;
things could have been much more pleasant had council posted that
information up front, during the discussion period. Frankly, I don't
care, either, because it's in the past.
