Another reason that the March 11 vote shouldn't be taken to have settled the issue

The July 14, 1999 Poll preceeded the introduction of message board based polls, so you must read through the thread to see the results. But it seems like a legitimate poll to me. It wasn't biased by suggestions of the "proper" decision. It was preceeded by extensive threads that discussed the issues. The old points are being made all over again, but I haven't seen any new ideas brought to the discussion since that time. The only difference I can detect is that the anticipated drawbacks of this choice are being realized, while the anticipated drawbacks of other choices are being ignored. In the absence of new information, I will be supportive of the status quo. Emotional flip-flopping isn't something I condone.
