Why the hyperbole?  I'm simply want the record to contain a discussion 
of why this is an emergency.  People will be looking over our shoulders 
soon.  I would like them to find a community that make well reasoned 
decisions following an open bottom up process.

I'm fine with crickets on PPML when we are following the normal policy 
process, but you are suggesting this policy should follow the emergency 
policy process. In that case I don't think crickets on PPML is a good 
thing.  It is not my intent to follow, I'm trying be a leader by 
facilitate a conversation and attempting to cajole members of the 
community to express their opinions on an important issue.  It is my 
understanding this is something that AC members are suppose to do, it is 
one of the many ways that AC members fulfill their leadership role 
within the community.

Do you see the AC's role differently?
