I beat you in the idiot department. I thought some of them were my
friends. I've learned a lot about trust since October. And yes, I
should have known better, especially about two of them.
I understand how you're trying to help NYLUG, but I give you my blessing
to walk away if that matters. FWIW, saving NYLUG is no help to me.
Either it's worth saving on its own merits or it's not, and either it
can be saved or it cannot. As to the first, the question is what is
being saved. And again, I feel it's just the domain name, and
principle. NYLUG sure as hell isn't that group of non-participants and
Brian that appointed themselves as "the board". They can call
themselves that and while it's offensive and their plans for NYLUG are
offensive to its essence, all they really have are three domain names,
and this has been too hard on too many people over a set of domain names.
As to the second, I don't see how you can stop them without lawyers and
lawsuits. Is it really worth all that for three domain names and the
principle of the thing? It seems like a terrible waste of everyone's
time, money and other capital. We all know what's happened here, and
that'll have to be enough. It's a story that will never go away, thanks
to the Internet, it should serve as a warning to others not to deal with
the NYLUG junta. At this point, I would rather see people use their
energy on positive things, and avoid the coup participants at their own
