Motion Muddle

I've been asked to try and explain the details of what happened at yesterday's Business Meeting, where the motions were flying around quickly. I hope to eventually try and do something about that, using my notes and the meeting video. But it was very complex, and I don't have the time to do it sufficient justice during Worldcon. Possibly if I'd sat down immediately after the meeting and spent an hour on it instead of going to eat lunch, I could have finished it, but not now.

Everything that happened yesterday was legal by the rules, but we did get a little deep into arcana, such as moving to suspend the rules to permit the introduction of motion to amend an amendment. Someday I will try and write the blow-by-blow account where it will probably sound more logical than it did while it was happening.
