Not only is Deja gone, but Kamloops is not a recognized imc even though
they fulfilled the requirements. Someone also tried to block Deja from
sponsoring a new imc.

It is also happening with the proposal to officially approve the POU.
There have been various concerns raised, clarifications asked for etc.
There has not been a single reply, discussion, etc about those
concerns. They just fall into the black hole. Who knows, maybe the POU
will be approved without any discussion.
This same thing happened with Kamloops too. Deja posted a well
researched email that extensively showed that the raised concern that
was stopping Kamloops was baseless in relation to a new imc being
accepted, but it was hardly replied to, and Kamloops slipped into the
mist. Still nothing is done to rectify the obvious mistake and really,
the insult given to Kamloops.
Why bother with this whole business? It is opposite of empowering. New
IMC's should boycott the new-imc process.
