"A chair who won't call for adoption of a draft because they don't want it"
Looks like obstruction is the modern basis of American corporate culture. By simply not doing one's job, the whole process stops and it appears there is nothing anyone can do about it. In a company the person can get fired, but in structures like the IETF there is apparently no one with that kind of authority.
I wonder how our society is going to learn to deal with that ?
