I appreciate your suggestion, but again must object that consistent with
2.2(d), voting has not taken place on the public mailing list with respect
to Microsoft's vote.

I object to your statement that Microsoft has cast its vote correctly.

This is a critical part to the transparency and accountability, both of the
Forum and the Chair. This has been reiterated with respect to Section
9.16.3, and reiterated with respect to our IP disclosures. I believe it is
highly improper and unprofessional to suggest that the outcome of the
ballot should influence whether or not the Forum operates by its Bylaws. If
this vote did not make any difference, we would still be objecting on the
principle here that the vote was not conducted properly.
