It shouldn't be thankless, so let me express my sincere appreciation
to Abbas, Jon, Mardetanha, Matanya, and Ryan. I know that it's not
easy, and I know that getting it right is more important than getting
it fast.

I won't speak for anyone else's motivations, but let me be clear that
I was only looking for something, anything, updating us on an overdue
deadline that many of us—the candidates, surely not the least—are
eagerly awaiting.

And yes, it's easy to let personal curiosity get overtaken by a
feeling of righteous indignation, but I have to say that a message
from ElecCom would have been really nice.
