[games_access] IGDA Website Problems

No offense Michelle but when I asked on the SIG leader list for
everyone's Top 5 issues with the website and their "what would I like to
see fixed right now" you were silent. You know I dealt with issues too
as a SIG leader and I was serious in taking everyone's concerns seriously.

So all this public complaining just makes things look worse than they
are. The staff and volunteers are doing the best they can and the
website can do a lot of things that the last one couldn't.

I encourage you to be positive and helpful and part of the process
instead of dragging it down.
