Yes.  I saw them both as well.

That may be true.  In my case, I'm a dialup slob so I grab by emails and 
browse them offline.  I accumulate links I'd like to look at, then when I 
pop back online, I send emails and browse the links.  Unfortunately, the 
process is error prone as my "link list" is mostly a memorization 
exercise...  So sometimes things like the vote slip.

I will also admit that I want to be a member of the foundation to do work 
in specific areas (standards and JAM).  I have _very_ little interest in 
the administration of the foundation so these types of issues are not high 
on my priority list.  Does this make me a poor Foundation member?  Would 
people like me be better off not being members and instead only 
participants in relevant JIG's?  Would our voice be heard just as well?

Plus, it does seem to indicate how important something is to the 
organization... My opinion at least.  If I don't see it on the main page, I 
assume its not that important or urgent.
