So it's taking three mandates, three years, and it can't be done? Why not?

How can the DPL not get something done by his delegates?

What purpose does our constitution serve if we can have people ignoring it
for years with no penalty whatsoever?!

Perhaps I agree with the *concrete* example, where one intricate problem was
cited as the sole reason for a change.

However, if there is also any implication that that complaints in general
don't help, and I infer that from the whole context, then I'll have to
repeat what I wrote before: that is a defeatist attitude, and the
*wrong* attitude in the organization that has a thousand members.
It's just untenable!

Doing anything in private conversations kills any transparency that
we might have hoped to have, and will ultimately not fix the problem.
