[atlarge-discuss] Re: [atlarge-panel] Resignation

Dear Vittorio,
why not just to act normally?
1. please repect the organization rules and call the people on line so this Panel at least exist. I do not understand the delay. Please publish a list of the Panel Members
2. please stop questionning polls, you confuse the things as you gives an importance it has not. Democracy is based on polls.
3. More impoprtant, do we have some proposition/solution on a real vote system?

Of course we are not afraid of that. But, in a democracy, can you
afford that the first person that walks by the place calls for an
election or a referendum? No. There is a balanced mechanism that is
vital to ensure that the democratical tools are used correctly, and
that relies on the laws and the parliament.

Anyway, it's true that this panel seems now uncapable of accomplishing
anything more.

We were almost ready to do it on our own (especially if the panel
could have got together to approve at least this motion). But Joop's
actions, de facto, killed this organization.
