Uhhh, cant agree there. 1) The JC isnt a democracy, never has been. The AC is no different. So get that thought out of your head. AC members represent JCers not by being elected, but by being regularmembers having the best interests of all regular members at heart. 2) New members are not indirectly chosen by the mods. The mods chose us, and we used our best judgement to choose the next batch. The mods hve NO say. Hell, we could choose a serial troll if we wanted to, but we dont. The mods have nothing to do with any AC appointments, other than to give us background into OUR nominees. 3) It wont be a self perpetuating clique. It was basically decided that ACers wont be able to be re-appointed until all other worthwhile candidates have been used. It would take a VERY long time for any of us to get back in. We are talking YEARS.
