Great! it can join all the other fantastic formal time wasters that has
been published from amsat for the last two years. Show me.

In other words lets just keep paying our dues and donations and don't
bother discussing this with others unless through official channels. Can
you spell DEMOCRACY? I think not.

 Your a Strategy Team member, aren't you listening? The only way to get
 AMSAT's attention seems to be to Broadcast, Bitch and hold it accountable
 to the very people who F-U-N-D it.

 I am not alone in the thought that P3D is a giant white elephant. Many
 members are pretty fed up with it. Make it FLY, prove us wrong! I dare
 you! Just more phoney promises and news releases on a regular basis.

 I for one will not be renewing/supporting AMSAT's P3D anymore.
