I am the person who contacted her off the list. I did this as a curtesy to
others, so that those who were not interested were not subjected to my
explanation. I've attached the entire letter below, for those who care to
read it, and also my reply to her reply (before I read her latest or I would
not have bothered). Please note that I never said NANFA was bad, I even said
I would rejoin. I never advocated killing NANFA, as Susan did the NFC. I
believe I represented everything fairly. If I did not
remember or represent something fairly, PLEASE let me know. I will certainly
apologize. It was a dirty election, and a dirty battle; that is how I
remember it. And I distinctly remember that the lists were purged of whole
threads simply because the debate did not represent NANFA in a positive
light. This was the BOD list, to which I subscribed.
If it sounds like I'm saying NANFA bad, NFC good, I sincerely apologize.
There was a lot of hard feelings, Robert was forced out, I stuck with Robert
because of his work in rebuilding NANFA - I've never met him.
