I have just been informed today that I have been expelled from the defend wally team for my comments that I posted on the internet in this thread questioning the progress and asking for updates. My alleged "outburst" is precluding me from being kept in the loop. What no sham of a grievance committee for breaking the code of ethics for moi?

Looks like you own it Bob. May it bring you many many happy hours of satisfaction and prestige.

This shocks anyone? Seriously? You've seen the comments I've posted from the SW/DW crew and you're still shocked by this action against Carol? These are the folks who are defending? Sounds more like turf protecting to me...... the inmates have been trying to run the asylum for roughly four months, have little to show for it, but by all means stay tuned to see them turn on each other more.

Carol, did they give you your money back? I'm guessing no.

Don't be too quick to come to global conclusions of all persons however. The lawsuit should be about the IBT and it's accountability in all matters, including fiscal responsibility, the grievance process and Leo's expulsion and all of that should stand on it's own merit and factual evidences. What about Bob is purely entertainment value.

Note that Leo has been no part of DefendWally and Defend Wally members have been no part of Save Wally for the most. While there was originally a shared initiative, as you have noted the objective may have taken a turn and a life of its own in the pursuit. Once ego replaces reason we are all doomed to be divided.

You are incorrect, on all counts.

Perhaps black coffee will help

Thumbs up

Who are the Save Wally team members and who are the Defend Wally team members? Or is it the issues that I supported that are incorrectly listed? Wrong on all counts is a pretty broad statement, Bob.

Understanding all these constituencies is impossible for me. It does seem cannibalism is sweeping through them.

Great quote Hamp. But man that was fast! One of my favorites has always been by George Orwell.

All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

Just took a very quick look at the final financial statement for 2009-10.

Overall it looks like a fairly good job was done of staying within budget With one glaring exception. Legal expenses.

The budgeted amount was $1000 and the actual expense was $29952 or $28952 over budget , apparently for cease and desist letters and expelling Leo.
I hope it was worth it as this would keep early workers in pancakes for the next 14 years or so.

It also appears the International made a profit of $85,000 which will do a lot to fill the $103,000 hole left by the last rally. While I see this as good planning on the part of Tom Collier, it can also be seen as a $121.00 overcharge on the backs of the 700 attendees.

It is interesting that after last years experience, the legal budget is still set at $ 1000.

Of course I am not a financial person so if any of this is not correctly interpreted let me know
