[EM] Answers regarding claim about Approval's enact-ability

I'm not sure what you are saying about your signature on the Declaration.

As a clarification, the original document at Google Docs needs an email 
address as part of the signature.  The copy of the Declaration at 
www.BanSingleMarkBallots.org omits the email addresses.

Because I seem to be acting in a secretarial role regarding signatures, 
I have less time to answer every question that is asked in this forum. 
I'm still trying to find time to reply to earlier questions asked by 
Jameson and Kristofer.  They have been patiently waiting.

As should be clear from my posts, I have put Declaration-related matters 
to the top of my priority list (including your signature requests!), and 
that pushes other forum-related topics down on my list of priorities 
(but it does not push them off the list).

Collaboration requires respect, and patience.
