I object to this characterization.  It is expressed in a manner that we 
will not tolerate on this list:

I'll note that you could have made the same point in a professional 
manner.  Yes, this could delay -- but not avoid -- this issue going to 
survey.

Ted has been asked, by the chairs, to help out on a number of issues; 
and when he has done so the results are generally positive.  Because we 
have prioritized his workload, it made sense to give some latitude on an 
issue that we did not include in that prioritization.
