Thanks for un-lurking. I certainly agree with what you're saying. The
voting system should not be an issue for either side -- should be totally
transparent and trustworthy. It will take some work to get there though.

Voting system anomalies are definitely of interest to the OVC, but I
strongly feel that OVC should not be the ones doing the dissection of the
2004 vote (it could be seen as a conflict of interest, and it probably is).
Certainly, if OVC members want to get involved in that, they are more than
welcome to do so -- preferably not in this forum.
