    Some sage advice from author Harry Turtledove [yes, that's his name] that would seem appropriate here.

    Make up your own mind, always.
    Think it through before doing so.
    Get the facts before thinking.

    There is often a feeling of Alternate History about this place. :)

    I am a member of AMSAT-NA and looking forward to being able to cast my vote. I actually took the time to educate myself about the candidates and learned that candidate selection is not just about supporting somebody that shares my vision about future types of satellites to launch. AMSAT is corporation that needs to manage finances, legal matters, public relations and ride share opportunities. I plan to support candidates that can support the BIG picture.

    If nothing else, I'm glad I took the time to learn more about what makes AMSAT tick.

    Banned? Perhaps not. However this sort of behavior should not be tolerated. Candidates should address issues and their plans, NOT making personal attacks against other members.

    We went through this during the previous two ARRL elections and it was not uplifting nor mannerly.

    Who was banned? What were they banned from?

    Sadly, I see a pattern. Posting about AMSAT people being banned is propaganda.

    Anyone claiming to be an evangelist should stick to facts and positive action. Not tearing down others.

    When do ballots ship out? Looking forward to using the new fancy confuser based ballots. Firing up my Apple ][e right now.
