    Links to the PAB Election pages:

    1. The general info
    2. All 8 election statements

    I'd like to compliment all 8 candidates on their strong sensible statements. Good luck to everyone who is standing.

    Best wishes

    Makes sense

    Given 8 are standing with Clive and James standing for re-election then the competition is too tight. All candidates seem to be pretty keen to inject something into the PAB therefore I would like to see either Clive or James do the gracious thing and pull out.

    Indeed, as James preaches that everyone should be 'righteous' then James should pull out.

    However, James maybe just words...I say pull over James and give one of these 30 year olds ago...how times do you want to be re-elected!!!!!!!!!!

    However humans are naturally selfish creatures even though they think they aren't

    Lee,

    Competition is a good thing, it offers choice, and if you are right in your assertions then Nominet's Members will vote for other candidates. That is their right.

    My standing again had nothing to do with selfishness, the selfish thing to do would have been not to stand again as there are issues I would like to see resolved. I will still work to resolve them even if I don't get elected.

    I think it's good to see 8 candidates, it means the Members have 8 choices. As election statements are often the first time Members become aware of candidates, they will have no preconceived bias and will vote on what they see in the statements. That is also a good thing.

    You would apparently deny them the choice of Clive Feather for instance, who is totally committed to the UK Internet Community and has a wealth of experience in relation to ISPA, Lonap, Linx and even the IWF.

    The election process has begun and the Membership will decide through the ballet box. If you believe in the Membership like Clive does (and so do I) then you accept their verdict whether its win or lose, because that's the way the Membership decide these things.

    Regards

    you dont

    Acording to you Nomient do listen to the PAB and PAB listen to members thus you can merely be a member and pass your thoughts onto the elected members....a mere filer

    A filter thats been in the fish tank too long stinks and is dirty...could clean it but nowadays they throw it away and get a new one

    Prime ministers have a term in office... whether it be John Major or Major Problem....normally terms can be renewed but not normally more than a few...thats being greedy....I vote for the food junkies....Rob and his chips and Cheezy with his cheese...chips with cheese on....no fish thanks

    I'm a democratic kinda fish myself and I've always known I'm only a small fish in a big pond and there are a lot of other fish, big and small, to consider. You are entitled to vote for whoever you wish Lee (if you have a vote). In the end, I don't mind who's elected to the PAB as long as it is a democratic election and whatever happens, it won't change my proactive stance. It didn't before - and I've been an ordinary member longer than I've been a PAB one.

    Incidentally, you don't have to be on the PAB to talk to Nominet, its Executive or its Board, you don't even have to be a Member. The one thing that seems evident in all of this conflict is that mutual respect and cooperation achieve more than continually butting heads, which may be a nice warm feeling while you're doing it, but that's all it is, it doesn't solve anything. If the purpose of conflict is to solve something, then we've both failed. Unless of course you just like nice warm feelings which don't even come with cheese or chips. ;)

    Regards
    James

    Presentation

    When people are presented with information that effect their professional conduct then they tend to cover things up and place themselves in denial.

    Business is quite simple....you get told the rules and then you play by the rules....if you get caught with a foul you get sent off but if the referee doesnt know the rules then you have no game to play and the foul becomes irrelevant.

    The point is...you don't know but you play game as if you do know..

    Something to lighten the load...

    Someone once said: "Winning isn't everything, but losing sucks".

    And someone else said, "it's not the winning or losing that's important, the important thing is to criticise the game."

    :cool:
