He didn't say any such thing, Ron. What he is saying that we had an
interesting and difficult interaction with Sunny previously as well.
He's not making any wholesale assault on his character and we would have
accepted him back as an NYLXS as participant without a second thought
if he wanted to do the work. He decided he didn't like out decision
making process and walked away. He continued to make decisions and work
anyway, and NEVER walked away from the process.
That has nothing to do with the events at NYLUG, either private or public.
I don't give a shit about the "Character" of the NYLUG board, and in the
future, neither will ANYONE ELSE. NY:UG can die as far as I'm
concerned, and who would care. It's primary purpose has been as a dog
and pony show for a decade and a promotional sceme for a few peoples
What they'll care about, for anyone who really ever chooses to get
involved more than sitting in a chair in the audience or hanging onto
IRC, will be how the organization is governed, and it is going to be
governed, IMO, like shit because the "board" will be entrenched and will
take nearly a decade to remove them if the active membership are ever
dissatisfied. If you had the rules being cooked up for their current
charter, a coup would have been impossible. Changing the board over all
would be entirely impossible except over continual effort over 3 years
and while the board was fighting you. CONGRADS. And the reason for
that is because YOU would rather have a fit than to act responsibly.
Frankly, I'm done with this topic. I have bad health issues I need to
take care of, I'm battling homelessness, and suffering from terrible
personal losses...and in a few months, it might not even matter with
regard to myself. But YOU guys could have had something better if you'd
had simply acted in good faith.
