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.
