Not sure where you have heard such complaints, Charles (and I don't doubt that you have) -- but I don't recall them.  Nor have I had any great flood of such emails.  Regardless, let's just agree what is or is not appropriate regarding election campaigning and proceed.

I am far more bothered by endless emails about voting systems .... 

------About voting system ---------------------

While I am certainly in favor of a fair voting system, over the years I have read endless emails and sat through hours of discussion on this topic.  Multiple solutions have been proposed; the answer is not clear.  Perhaps as David Singer wrote, it's not clear which problem we seek to solve.

In any case, I appreciate that some people feel passionate on the topic and are willing to try to figure this out.  As a whole, the AC and AB have consistently been less interested than the fervent few.  I currently feel 'beaten up' by the passion and endless pounding and wish this topic would be taken to some other list.

-------- About what to do ----------------

I believe the CG you referred to, Charles, is the "Revising the W3C Process" Community Group. Do you propose to hold the voting discussion in that CG?  (If yes, I am unsubscribing.)  I would prefer that the voting system afficionados start a new CG, specifically on that topic.
