I rest my case.  Anthony is not being serious here, he is trolling.

There is a legitimate question as to what to call a resolution which was
never voted upon, because no one ever made a motion that it be voted on,
because it was in preliminary drafting stages.  Was it rejected?  Was it
never really proposed?  That is what Angela is talking about.

Spinning this into some kind of lack of transparency is just... well, it
is Anthony.  Nonsense.
