Ok, I think a new tack might be appropriate - other thoughts?

We should wipe everything from after article 2 - notwithstanding Jimmy
Kaplowitz' note about a contradiction in article 1 - on and start over,
keeping what we agree is good rather than removing what is not.

To do this I would suggest making a list of key points the by-laws must
have, and then together write the simplest possible by-laws that conform
to those points (such as membership rules/requirements, committee
charters, board rules, elections, and amendments), keeping them all
properly separated and in the spirit of SPI's charter and purpose. Looking
back over my points and everyone else's, I think "fixing" the by-laws
might be a bit too much of a bandaid solution, and rewriting them may well
be in order.
