Quoting Bill Ward (bill at wards.net):
> Let's be clear on this whole "elected leader" thing.
Yes, indeed let's.
> As an unchartered SIG, the only officer of SVLUG that has any legal
> standing is "SIG Coordinator"....
"Legal standing"? Is someone planning to _sue_, Bill? Otherwise, I am
unclear on why you're suggesting that SVLUG's democratic process somehow
> Also, SVLUG has never been independent.
You are mistaken. SVLUG was independent during the long period when
SVCS basically ignored us and cut us loose (the fact that SVCS's Web
site _still_ lists SVLUG as as SIG notwithstanding).

And we would immediately, of course, say "The _hell_ you say", and walk.
> Ian has graciously allowed SVLUG to choose its presidents for the past
> three and a half years....
Oh, give me a break.
Folks, the gloves are starting to come off! This tiny corporation is
now acting like it's entitled to be our feudal overlords.
No, Bill, I really don't think so. But I thank you _indeed_ for
clarifying the SBAY attitude. A clearer case for resumed independence
could not possibly have been stated.
