That's not completely obvious to those of us reading the lists. There's
been no response to several urgent questions regarding the current
ballot, not even "I'm stuck in private business, back in two weeks,
please consider everything on hold", which would be perfectly acceptable
in our volunteer organization. We have no right or ability to force
participation from our members, but it would be polite for someone in
such a (currently) critical position to ask for help when needed.

Actually there was an urgency. There isn't now, because the vote ended
10/23/2000, with no response from Darren after 10/10/2000 (unless I
inadvertantly deleted something, which is quite possible, so feel free
to correct me).
