I was going to pull a classic Ryan here and stomp this thread to the ground with a novel. But I decided otherwise.
@Doc, I think you know who it is that you trust to carry out whatever ideas you have for this section. I advise getting in contact with those people privately. I can appreciate you bringing the people of the section into this, but Dave picked a leader so the leader could pick members according to said leader's trusted judgement.
This thread is just causing an unnecessary uproar of opinions that don't really matter in the grand scheme.
