David Goodman

I oppose the resolution because in the track where the participants work off-Citizendium, it appears to cede control over our editing process to the seminar instructor;Even though the final work would still go through the same approval process that we now have, the editing would not have taken into account the possible contributions of fundamentally open wiki. I oppose any group being able to lock a topic into their exclusive control for several months. This is not an approach that leads to consistency. DavidGoodman 20:46, 21 July 2007 (CDT)

David, perhaps we could make our contributions on the Talk page (Discussion tab). We could suggest alternate wordings, additional facts, correct errors, and otherwise comment. --Anthony.Sebastian (Talk) 17:37, 24 July 2007 (CDT)
