    Might be time to discuss and vote on a new entity formation pending the report on entity types discussion.

    Can someone explain to us idiots what all this is about? Who wants to own the domain and why? It all seems so bullshit.

      Well, it is bullshit. Many Moons ago, two persons put up a couple thousand bucks to buy the domain name from the original owner who was holding it hostage, and spun up Soylent News PBC as a company to hold the assets of SoylentNews.org. Those owners are now looking to get out, but they're making it needlessly difficult, almost as if they're now holding it hostage themselves, but that's a nasty accusation.

      Anyway, what's basically happening, in spirit, though the terms don't *quite* fit here, is that we're trying to orchestrate an employee buyout to prevent the site from going dark.
