That is exactly what I tried to do with my statement on the ballot. 
The affiliates have the right to vote. I thought letting them know 
that was a good thing. You have shown how wrong I was.

Email is an unforgiving medium. I labeled my silly answer as a 
"sarcastic response." I regret having said it at all, because 
most of you do not know how my sense of humor works. I had 
expected that the disclaimer would show that I did not mean it, 
but things do not always work as intended.

If you're referring to what I think I read, a family with 5 
AIS members all voted the same way (perfectly okay), and an 
affiliate which happens to have one of the family members 
as president also voted the same way (not violating any rules, 
but perhaps bending the intension of affiliate voting). 

Walter (again),

Lest there be any misunderstanding, I fully realize that 
you have already contributed much (MUCH) more to irisdom 
with your hybridizing than I will even if I continue with 
my computer stuff for 40 more years (which I hope to).

I deeply regret the problems I have caused you and your 
society, and welcome all suggestions for making next 
year better.

But I'm glad y'all voted.
