The AMSAT membership has obviously long been in the dark about how the
organization operates and what's involved in the finances and various
decision making processes. Michelle and Patrick are trying to turn on a
light and get some clarity and transparency. Despite the rancor it's
caused and the fact that it's painful, it's becoming more and more
undeniable how necessary it was and I fail to see how it's a bad thing.
I'd love to go back to discussing satellites too but sometimes you have
to go through the bad to get to the good. That's life.
Hmmm ... never tried that. List messages are included in regular Google searches - but I am not sure if the more current years are included, or just the ones on the “old system” are being searched.
