There can be no arguement that you both are right, the question is, what about those who left AMSAT or no longer pay due because they also - silently - are voting with thier talents, skills, and money which are not available... It is no problem to have a group which is in - at least tacit - agreement, just force the others out or ignore them until they leave.
I believe you are right, Bob. The total number of dissenting opinions at least on the -bb have been few. I have been silent, although tempted to reply, but I believe you have hit the nail on the head. I believe the "silent majority" is behind AMSAT.
