I STRONGLY disagree with making this change. The SSTC has over 260 members, of which 40-50 are active voting members. However, our TC regularly receives valuable input on email discussion topics from members that don't have currently active voting status. These postings are from folks such as those in other TC's that monitor our list because those TC's have some dependency on ours. Requiring folks to find some other mechanism to provide their input simply throws up barriers in front of them and will in all likelihood result in us not receiving that input at all. The input from these members is very important to us. I believe this to be a bad change of policy that goes against the open, free exchange of ideas that we rely on.
