Actually, this is *exactly* why we had the vote that we did, so that
one BC member could not unilaterally decide to censor discussions by
making  them "members only." The "internal list" is illegitimate, and
does not exist. Re-read the text of what we voted on, it was very
clear. What one member thinks is "appropriate" is irrelevant given the
vote we had.

And to make my point further, I've attached to this post the draft BC
charter that was sent by the officers yesterday, so now it is public
and archived. Those following our mailing list (millions of businesses
we purport to represent) and other organizations (DOC, DOJ, etc. who
monitor our list) can see transparently how the BC operates, and the
ful uncensored context of our discussions.

And to make another point, I've reviewed the terms under which the
2009 Budget were released. There were no restrictions put on its use.
I am thus putting it on the public list, and will refer to it in my
comments on the draft charter (as per my previous "bite size posts")
in the coming days.

Members don't need to "ask permission" to do things that are 100%
within the existing charter and rules.
