"Where as I do agree I should have been a little better informed about

realized that toes would be stepped on. I still stand by the
decision that has been made but I am also open to suggestions and
comments on how we should continue."
I'd like to point out that there is a major difference between "toes being
stepped on" and stripping people of their rights. This creature that many
of us veterans have nurtured and fed and helped to evolve had, as its most
vital aspect, an inherent right at equal voice, and that has been suddenly
removed. Our organization and our rights within it seem to have been taken
away from us within a weekend.
I'd also like to point out that there is no decision if the majority of the
population disagrees. If the people choose to keep our Consortium and our
old list, no one can stop us from doing so. I could go to Flintmarsh (for
example) today and say, "your group doesn't exist anymore, and from now on
we will do things *this* way," but that doesn't make it so.
While I honestly like the new proposed changes, at least the cohort
involvement and individual-based membership, I will leave the Consortium in
a heartbeat if decisions continue to be made without concensus.
