        Sorry, perhaps I should have made it more explicit. You may well
be the right person for the job; but I prefer to vote for any or some of:
people I know, have met, discussed stuff with, are old time Gnome
contributors and I know I can trust.

        I think the above explained it well, so let's run that again.

        The thing is that I am not confidant that I will win. Perhaps my
'blatant demagoguery' is not up to your standard :-) so ... I was thinking
that if I encourage people to vote for 4 Helix people who I think would be
great, and then myself ( about whom I have a rather biased opinion ), then
there is a chance that 4 of my votes would still be a blow for freedom and
cause for rejoicing among all right thinking people everywhere ... =)

        Does that explain it ? then again, as I explained, posting ones
list of candidates just seemed like an invidious fashion. I can't imagine
you were hoping to unduly influence people by posting yours were you, and
if you could not influence people then me, a lowly hacker posting is
likely to have little effect. Fret not, I suspect you loosing my vote is
not overly significant in the grand scheme of things.

        I'm looking forward to wishing you all the best with your new
executive position, Personaly I'm eyeing up the post of Chief Assistant to
the Assistant Chief.
