Ad hoc and spontaneous voting


        I am wondering what value do these suddenly burgeoning votes
 have? I understand that they may give us an understanding about
 public opinion, but what other charter are they run under? They
 certainly do not seem to follow the contstitutional general
 resolution protocol, and I see nothing that would lead me to believe
 that merely voting has been authorized as an accepted method for
 making changes in the way we operate. 

        Most votes (like the non-free issue) have been called with no
 formal proposal, seconds, or a discussion period. I have strong
 feeling against taking any action whatsoever merely on these votes.

 You will feel hungry again in another hour.
