bad comparison. Your house, my house(s) (grin), (insert names) house is private property with an expectation both in common law, law, and ethics of privacy.
It is no where near the same as a public board which would not exist without the funds of members who pay dues. If the AMSAT board members were doing all the financial lifting for the board with no dues used then there might be some better comparison...but ...
sorry the comparison is not even close. In fact it is frankly very poor...about the worst one can have.
nice try. I would have to give you a D minus

> Yo, Robert - I'm coming over to your house this weekend. No, you didn't invite me, but I'll show up anyway. I am bringing my sick St. Bernard - he might mess up the carpet a little until he gets well. I might stay a week or so, I dunno. I kinda like that artwork on your mantle - I think I'll take it home with me when I leave. Sorry about the spilled Pina Colada stain on the rug - I get excited while watching San Diego Chargers football. And I knocked a hole in the wall of that back bedroom - to feed some cabling through for the portable tower I brought with me. The smoke damage from that little fire I accidentally started in the kitchen won't cost you too much in repairs - and the awful smell will go away in a year or so, no biggie. Hey - the fridge is now empty - great Omaha steaks, by the way ... and I used up all your charcoal ...
> No, Robert, you would not welcome my presence in your house. You would ban me for life. You'd change the locks and have a restraining order issued.

Heck, there was a post today right here that - if *I* were moderating the system - would never have been seen by anyone else.
