I guarantee you the Communications Committee is on the job.  What's more, they are doing a GREAT job - for no money and apparently no gratitude.  It is worse than thankless, no matter what they do they will be derided.  Filter someone and they get flamed.  Leave someone allowed to post and they get reamed.  I'm shocked anyone would actually want the job.

So, I propose a new rule: To flame the CC, you MUST have volunteered to be on the CC.

IOW: Put up or shut up.

Since I have not volunteered to be on the CC, and would not serve if asked, I will only thank them profusely and beg them not to give up amid the criticism they constantly receive.

Thank you Communications Committee Members!
