Can we do this for FO-29 and start a campaign for JAMSAT? another one for VO-52, another one for SO-
50, and what about individual who fund their own project with their own $?.

It was another BAD idea as many who are not AMSAT members anymore quit for this very same reason 
BAD decisions made by AMSAT as this last one to cancelled S mode downlink on Eagle.

Implementing a near toll system for AO-51 users in contrary to the HAM spirit. I understand as you 
said "I am not a subscriber to the list" but you are if you send this message and please read back 
a bit some past thread on AMSAT-BB.

management and supervision.

As another one ask you what you will do with those who are ONLY funding a specific project?

Put your money where the needs are and in a logical way send your $ or S to P3E this way you will 
really promote the real ham SPIRIT not the politics...

P.S. read more what the crowds are writing on this BB 

The medium is the message...The content is the audience...;)
