General Discussion / Re: QUESTION: Free Speech vs An Audience's Rights

I think it's interesting that in a discussion about free speech and censorship someone had their commentary edited by an administrator.

You should have already done this and just reported the RESULTS, yo.

(But then, I'm crazy, so DO THAT SHIT.)

Congratulations to Inkera and the Charlotte crew for putting on NPS 2012.
No matter what you plan for, it's never an easy job, and we're not the easiest tribe to work with.

Thank you for carrying Slam's torch this year!

Just for clarification's sake, votes on the 21+ issue were taking place in 2002. In 2004 this issue came to a head again.
I can't speak to when they actually made it into bylaws or rulebooks.

"NUPIC is when your words are fire coming from your mouth and the passion of your life sweats through your pores. "

See, I thought that was just because you always have this shit in hot weather. That one in West Palm Beach was like slamming in a sweat lodge. I think I threw my bout just to get some AC. But it was POETRY'S fault all along!

Thank you Abigail!
I know it's your job, but it never hurts anybody to vocally appreciate the vast amount of work on this particular task.

I'm sorry, THIS is the issue that should make us pull out of a state wholesale? This issue over all others is the one that should cause us to pull up stakes and boycott our own event?


General Discussion / Re: 2012 Executive Council Members
« on: March 15, 2012, 08:20:55 AM »

While this question would have been best served going directly to the board and not the world, the answers to your questions are no and yes. The first has in fact been recommended, debated and voted on with at least one EC in the past. The second is yes, we have a DD but funds have not been forthcoming.

Now let me tell you why I think asking this in the ether ofthe General Discussion forum and not of the EC directly is wrong:

1) You ask it in a place (thread) that has no relevancy to your concern or the subject of the thread. The second question at the very least has been asked and answered before in public space in the forums. If you sought out answers to these questions in previous threads and couldn't find them it is very likely because someone else asked the same thing in a thread labeled "What is the Storm poet selection process?" or "2012 Last Chance Slam" much like you posted it in "2012 Executive Council Members" and now no one can find the information. The EC can see all threads in all forums so creating a thread specifically for your question would have reached them as easily as this one - which will be lost to time in a matter of days - while remaining searchable and relevant for future discussions.

2) I have also worked with a number of similar organizations. Almost none of them provide the type of access to the planning body that PSi provides, so I can understand the temptation that being able to ask a public question like this of them provides. That said, there are nuances to these issues that are difficult to answer thoroughly to a question presented in such a non-nuanced platform.

In the future I would suggest that if you mean for your concerns to actually go to the EC specifically that you send them to the EC, not the Membership or in this forum, where anyone with internet access can go. This is not about transparency or secretive communications; this is about relevancy. The EC shouldn't be the only ones expected to exercise professionalism. In fact, you state that you are on an HC committee. So you have direct and non-public access to the EC already, so I don't know why you did not use that forum or avenue to speak directly to them. At the very least it suggests that you did not actually mean for this to go to the EC alone.

I hope this helps.

I think I know the answer to this, but: can someone in the know post which members were elected to 2-year terms and which will be up for re-election next March?

2 year terms:
Sam Castello
Jesse Parent
Suzi Q Smith

1 year terms:
Inkera Oshun
Karen G

What an awesome EC!

General Discussion / Re: Kirk Hardesty, running for EC
« on: March 09, 2012, 09:57:16 AM »
Here is my version of a Kirk Hardesty burn:

I cannot count how many times Kirk's name has come up as someone we've considered for a variety of jobs, including filling a spot on the EC when we might have had a spot.

If you saw my journal entry about where my 6 votes are going, replace #6 with Kirk. He's late, but he's great.

Is there anyone on the EC working on this issue

I only ask because it is hidden in the "Can you see the SM forum" thread and there is no public communication on it, so far.
