As a relatively new and heretofore 'inactive' member, but one who  
reads posts with interest and culls very helpful information from  
them, I would like to voice a concern about the present discussion  
regarding which members should "qualify" to vote. It seems to me that  
some of those who are able to regularly attend meetings are  
suggesting that the group excludes those that cannot. Not only that,  
but to possibly exclude those who do not regularly contribute to  
posts. A spreadsheet to tally questions and answers supplied to  
streams? Yikes. Talk about shades of big brother!

There are any number of reasons that would make it difficult, if not  
impossible, for the majority of members to attend meetings.   
"Lurkers," as we have been called in this stream, are every bit as  
interested in the community's concerns as those who have chosen, or  
are able to be, more active. Access to public discussion in an online  
venue is the primary reason I became a member, and I am concerned  
that a possible next step would be to exclude entirely from  
membership those users that choose not to engage on a level others  
deem "active."

Perhaps they're just shy :)

Enjoying the discussion,
