    Roberts rules of order were never voted in as a rule here, and as such are as null as your dictates.

    To be fair, open and honest, Robert's Rules of Order also provide that whenever and wherever a presiding officer or chair of an assembly rules, one or more members of the assembly may challenge the ruling of the presiding officer or chair at which point the presiding officer or chair must state categorically the by-law or rules of order provision being the basis of his/her ruling.

    Clearly, from a procedural perspective, if you have no rules in place governing the acceptance of new members, that decision should be left to the body of the membership to decide either on a case by case basis or to decide on a rule going forward. There should be provisions in place that govern who and how new members may join and it should not be at the discretion of one individual unless the assembly as a whole has granted that person the authority in its place.

    The above is, of course, dependent on whether or not your membership has adopted Robert's Rules of Order in the absence of your own set of rules/by-laws. Since you quote them as an authority, I assume they have.

    So in short order we have seen vote manipulation to change vote results, awkward shifts of power on who is President, additional members added at will and now open participation, and now "out of order" thread ignore declarations all the while calling us problems.

    Fantastic.

    They have not, and ironically he is further illustrating my point in attempting to push them.

    Yes I am very familiar with Robert's Rules of Order. Its just one minute you are telling me that we need to get on with the convention and that the job of making the rules is #3 on the list. I want to know when we adopted Robert's Rules of Order. Could you please give us a link to that vote or the discussion or anything?

    But if you ever get elected President, feel free to overrule the wishes of the members and declare a vote irrelevant and then do whatever you want
    And this is exactly how you view the presidency isn't it?

    In the most Orwellian manner possible, it apparently is.
