Are you a member of KCBS?
Not sure how it's relevant, but I am a KCBS member -- and I voted for John Markus, Phil, Jeff and other unsuccessful candidates that the Brethren have (informally) gotten behind. I've corresponded with KCBS Board Members and Candidates on KCBS issues. I've also served as a Board member for the Mid-Atlantic BBQ Association.
I still think you are making a huge jump in your conclusion based on the poor response to your polls. Did you consider that the response rate was low because:
- They fell on a busy competition weekend.
- They were posted on one of the less trafficked forums.
- People didn't like the set answers you provided.
- People didn't care for the questions you asked.
Quite frankly, I missed your threads because I had a busy weekend and didn't see them. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Either way, I don't think the response rate to your polls is the appropriate gauge of Brethren interest in KCBS affairs.
