Good. If everything that you are saying is correct and I am in fact wrong, then you and your other fairly-elected committee members should have no problem delaying this issue another 48 hours and agreeing to a re-vote, this time with more potential voters outside of the original group of posters?

I sent it to Skeptic Overlord. This is what I sent, but it may change in the details if it's accepted at all.
This thread is moving fast... so I may as well paste my response here...
The announcement thread has been up for 24 hours. By this time, anyone not providing a substantive commentary within that thread either doesn't care about discussing drugs on ATS, or isn't on ATS all that often. I think the members have their participants within the people who have already contributed (to the thread).
Really... I think the potentially most productive participants are found within those responding to this thread.

They sold (what was) this excellent site to some corporation cause they weren't making enough money. Now its become so filled with adds and stupid pop-ups its really hard to enjoy coming here anymore.
Oh well its a big internet so I guess I'll move on, I'll probably be banned for my name anyway.
Deny what again?
(DEA) cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana—i.e. non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled, and it has not followed procedures required to schedule a substance.

In a lot of places, hemp and MJ are one and the same. It isn't right, but it's true.

Maybe it's a good time to click on the six committee person's profiles now, while they're 'in session', in a sort of review of these members' interests, and posts, and threads, and views, and friends, and foes, to get a perspective of, and feeling for them, and see a little more into just who our trusted leaders for the future of the new forum are

Very good, DISC has been chosen, and are working with staff. Maybe it's a good time to click on the six committee person's profiles now, while they're 'in session', in a sort of review of these members' interests, and posts, and threads, and views, and friends, and foes, to get a perspective of, and feeling for them, and see a little more into just who our trusted leaders for the future of the new forum are, whether familiar with them or not, in an effort to be better ready for them when they come back and lay it out to us.
You-know, instead of clicking the 'post reply' button to this thread as much, in an effort to stem the rapid growth of this monster somewhat.
And to contact any of your friends from the boards who share similar interests, but haven't posted here yet, (with a quick overview and update for them so they aren't deterred by the huge volume) to inspire them to come and give some fresh ideas- aside from the existing set of posters here already, in hopes of seeing a more diverse selection of other member's suggestions, besides the ones we keep seeing in such repetetive style.
Now I'll zip-it, and go practice what I preach!
