Although we are all politicized, 
this group's charter outlines our neutrality, so that we can best support the GA and its working groups.
We don't want to create a technocracy.
Many on the list have limited bandwidth to contribute to the many projects already underway, and do not have time to parse much more than techno-speak. I really don't want to see us lose those people.

Please pursue advocacy and debate in other groups.

This group will be here to support actionable items that are the result of this process.
Many of us here are active in other groups as well, and will be happy to be drawn into debate in those fora.
