If that is the case, then I apologize to Phil Hands for my defensiveness.
While I may not personalize the outcome of the logo vote, I do personalize
the process itself, because I've only been trying to do things as I
understand the Constitution says they should be done.

I agree, but campaigning makes me nervous.  In binding together the issues
of "vote this way" and "this whole vote is a sham" (or at least
ill-conceived), I think he's encouraging people to think sloppily about the
issue.  I could be wrong though.  I'm hardly an unbiased participant.

Again, it's not the vote outcome that concerns me so much as criticisms of
the process itself, which I take personally because it's this particular
vote which is at issue.  If Phil has a beef with the constitution itself, I
think that could be discussed separately from the initimate details of this
particular vote.
