	People who are too lazy to read three!! messages sent to
 their mailbox about an important issue like a foundation
 document change are unlikely to pay attention anyway.

	They are liars. Misled how? Tge full fucking text of the
 bloody GR was in the ballot sent to each developer not once,
 not twice , but three times. If you do not read the ballot, and do
 not read about what you are supposed to be voting on when sent to
 you in email, there is no hope for the project.

	I am tired of all the apologists for people who were just too
 lazy to read a low volume list like d-d-a, and now seek to malign
 the secretary and sponsors by saying they were ``mislead''.
