    Vince,

    I respectfully decline the nomination.

    Why are you declining ?

    My reasons are:

    1) I don't think the mandate of an upper level *C is compatible with the mandate of an FTSC-member. One could be accused of attempting to push an agenda
    ... there have been such FTSC-members that got elected for the wrong reasons and with the wrong purpose in mind.

    2) In my opinion it falls into the "too many hats" category

    Which does not mean I do not appreciate the nomination, the combination of mandates is a tad too complicated I find.

    Take care,

    Marc,

    I would like to nominate Dale Barnes. If he's already been nominated
    I'll second it.

    Seconding is not a requirement.

    His nomination. I'm well aware that he hasn't accepted yet. Hence, the notation to that effect in the status I posted earlier.

    There's no need to answer this but I'd love to hear about your reasoning of why you think this nomination is justified by past performance beyond "because I can" ...

    Your FTN skills end at being an overglorified nodelist clerk.

    So, Mr. Invited Guest, what FTN software have YOU written that justifies your being privy to the FTSC inner workings?

    There's no need to answer this either because I already know the answer like everyone else: you're a old Fidonet "has-been" that feels you have to justify your existance in Fidonet by using pedantic histrionics for attention because you could be easily "removed" from your technical position by the rest of us simply rerouting around you and your Z2C position by using methods you yourself helped "develop".

    You want to ask others for justification? It's time for you to provide the same thing.

    Sean, all current ZCs are invited guests, and for good reason. Been that way for quite some time.

    That is not completely true, but also not completely untrue .....

    Waaay waaay back when animals still could speak I mentioned to an FTSC-chair that they could decide upon standards as much as they wanted but without ZC-backing it did amount to very little. This was around that time when a particular (I think German) guy wanted to push something through and did not succeed. So he got himself elected in the FTSC, pushed his thing through and left Fidonet with some choicy words...

    To prevent things like that from happening again I requested access to the private deliberations of the FTSC ... and got it ... because I requested it ... not because it was granted out of vision.

    I think Scott was the chairman around that time ...

    Yes, Scott Little, Z3 and later Z3C and stepped down then as chair.
