   Good point. That would mean that direct mailing or phone calls would
have to be used for those not online, if the Black Star deadline is missed.

   Another good point. It doesn't really affect the meaning of the given
bylaw, though, and for our current discussion, it's very convenient to
have it with the bylaw it applies to. And so far, that's the only bylaw
it applies to.

   I fear I left some details out of my minutes. At Steppes, the group
decided that A.G.E.D. was not so important or critical an organization
that a bad Proctor couldn't be endured until it was time to elect a new
one. The consensus was that, in the long run, trying to oust a Proctor
would cause more divisiveness than it was worth.
