[theforum] Show of hands - final results

Dear all,

As promised, I intended to tally results and publish them weekly for at
least two weeks.
As nothing happened this week and no extra responses were given - I declare
this to be final tally of the "show of hands" request. 

The most astonishing news are the fact that of 107 people subscribed, only
22 responded. One of the responses was "sadly I'm gone, going to unsub" so
I'm guessing that 106 people are now subscribed to the list. With 21 active
enough to respond, that means 85 non-responsive.

Hopefully some of the 85 people will participate when it comes to that, but
I fear more that they are silent listeners. I absolutely am not encouraging
them to unsubscribe, but rather hoping to break their silence :)

Anyways. With the following results available I suggest that we hand over
the control of evolt.org to the enthusiast group and those of us in cats C
and D step back and enjoy the show :)

With that I'm off. I will still give my opinion, will always be able to
answer questions or give directions with regard to evolt's past, will still
be in the surveillance role within finance, and will still support the
decisions the enthusiasts make, but I don't think it would be fair for me
(or other temporarily or permanently in cats C and D) to interfere with
those decisions.

Good luck and hopefully you'll be able maintain (or perhaps rebuild is a
better word) what has been a great community at times.

But be prepared that if nothing has happened or changed in 6-8 months time,
I'm likely to reiterate the "shut down" suggestion I made a few weeks back.
