DH>>> REC17

BF>> I see.

BF>> Point of order:

BF>> I challenge the right for this person to vote, since he has not
BF>> recognised EP1, and therefore can not even exist since there is no
BF>> policy giving him any right to exist.

EC> Overruled.

EC> While you have valid point regarding REC's not having a mandate
EC> backed up by policy, in those parts of FidoNet where EP1 or a similar
EC> echomail policy is not in force, there is more to FidoNet than just
EC> policy.

EC> There is also tradition, precedent and unwritten rules. With or
EC> without policy, *ECs have existed in FidoNet. Z1 RECs have been
EC> allowed to vote in previous FTSC elections and the rules have not
EC> change since then.

EC> Dallas Hinton is listed as 1:17/2 with "RC17_Assistant_and_REC" in
EC> the system name field and I therefore accept that RC17 backs up his
EC> mandate as REC17. His vote is accepted.

EC> Michiel van der Vlist
EC> Election Coordinator

Thanks Michiel.
