Generally when I see someone putting an "e" on the end of a word they 
are either trying to open a Bed and Breakfast and look quaint or they 
are making a joke of the people trying to look quaint.  Your use of the 
term was embedded in a post that was not that supportive of the AC so I 
took it as the second meaning, ie: sarcastic.  I'm glad no ill intent
was intended.

But I am serious when I say that you should run.  If you really do think
the AC is not in touch then your obligated to run.  I certainly don't 
agree with all their decisions all the time, myself.  Any of them on the 
AC could tell you that.  But if your going to advocate privatization of 
the RIR system you won't get my vote.  I'll disagree with what you say 
but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
