2. Looks good to me...
Edited on Fri Feb-03-12 01:57 AM by ellisonz
...I might simplify the SOP edit just a bit so it doesn't get turned into a debate about DU2 which many people seem to have negative feelings about at DU3. Simplicity is beauty.

SOP: A place for Occupy Wall Street members and supporters to promote the values of Occupy Wall Street, share information, and form a broad-based collaborative community. This is a forum for supporters of the 99%. While dissent is allowed because there are many different groups that oppose rule by the 1%, anti-Occupy Wall Street rhetoric belongs in other forums.

I think to an extent the community in itself will fulfill the purpose you desire in your edit. I think that reflects the will of Mic-Check #1 that it be a "simple description" - I would also raise the number required to edit the by-laws up to 10 in bullet 10 so that it doesn't become an incessant battle.

I hope this is a document that meets the concerns of all who have voice their opinion. It has been my pleasure to work on this project. Let's get it proposed. I think the first attempt made to add the Buddhism and Asian Groups almost broke the DU. So the sooner we get the ball rolling on getting it created by elad that sooner we can get back to the regularly scheduled programming. I think the fastest we can expect this maybe to be done is within a week. :-(

In other news, Occupy Honolulu was de-encamped today under a new law targeting the belongings of the homeless: - My sister had been involved in the legal questions facing the group.

I think it's going to be important to not engage any disruptive members in the Meta thread. Once it's up I'll PM as many occupy friendly posters as possible to get as many signing as fast as possible. Leopolds_Ghost you care to do the honors after this is debated for say maybe another 24 hours or so?

Aloha to all! :thumbsup:
