        Firstly, why is a general resolution marginalized because we
 are going to vote on it on its own? This is mystifying.

        As to the timing, I thought that letting people know about the
 standing of the resolution early was a service -- and I fail to see
 why delaying the announcement while other people commented would have
 made a difference.

        Either the resolution is valid, and needs to be voted upon, or
 it is not. If you do not think we need to vote on it, please withraw
 that resolution.
