uh Rah!!!

So as people might notice... things have improved since October!!!!  In fact I think that the FSP is in for a great run the for the next year.
Let's BOOST our activitism.  If you haven't volunteered .... do so.  Get the word out at local events.  You never know who you will meet and how quickly they will sign up and move. (Someday I will post my weird introduction to the FSP...Hearing to moving <10 months).

Thanks Sandy!!!!!!!!!

It would be cool if certain Undergrounders would stop posting on this forum about how much it stinks in comparison to the other one, and how weak and ineffectual the FSP is in comparison to the Underground.  I don't believe that, and I can't think of any FSP'ers who are posting on the Underground forum in such a hostile and antagonistic manner

with all due respect, Sandy, I don't think any undergrounders are complaining about the FSP forum (although I admit that its hard for me to keep up with every single post).  But I haven't seen that.  Some undergrounders put in a plug for other organizations (for instance, I plug my Republic of NH site www.republicofnh.org ), but I don't think that is meant as a slight to your forum here, just a little marketing for our pet projects.

Actually, I told Russell today that his forum is getting boring, compared to the FSP forum.   :D

 8) update .... some of the things are better.

Brian says we can drag him to NH in October if necessary. Maybe we should elect new board members every year and then force them to move. ;D

Who are these rogue underground posters pointing to nhfree.com? (dreepa, nick?) .... if they post here aren't they also FSP forum denizens?

WHAT??

This coming from an acknowledged kleptomaniac and Ghandi wannabe.  Mr. Revolutionary God in his own mind.

Did you finally decide to stop tilting at windmills just long enough to take a stab at me, before heading off for a new round hassling airline employees?

I can’t help it that your forum is stagnant.  Don’t shoot the messenger, Russ.

This "Russ" guy sounds like a real heel. I will steer clear of him.

Caleb,
Here are a few links demonstrating what I'm talking about.  These are all from within the past few months.  Although, to be fair, things have mellowed a bit; it used to be worse.

Sandy,

I'm sure sometimes things get said.  I read the links you posted me.  And I can understand why you might feel a little slighted.

But maybe just a word in defense.  Most of the posts you referred to were by Dada.  I looked at his number of posts, and he's posted, on this forum, 2612 times.  By contrast, I've posted 302 times.  You've posted 178 times.  Russell Kanning (the great instigator) has posted only 1448 times.  Compared to Dada, we're all FSP Forum neophytes.  A few posts here and there that are critical are surely outweighed by his enormous contributions on this very forum.

Dada also spends enormous energy promoting this site on countless other forums, to be fair to him, probably more so than any other member of the FSP.  That's not a slight to other members, its a tribute to how much energy he directs towards the goal of recruitment.

If Dada has a few posts now and then that direct attention to another forum and comment on how "dead" this forum has been (in the past), from what I know of him that was probably said with a twinge of sadness, not glee.

Alright, Dreepa, since you asked...

Quote
The current configuration of the Board of Directors is self-appointed and meets in secret.

This is still largely the case.  Of the seven current Directors (Jason, Steve, Varrin, Morey, Brian, Jon and myself), only Morey and I were elected by a group other than the Board itself.  This issue has been discussed by the Board at various times, but an official decision has not been made.  Jean spent some time formulating guidelines as to which group of FSP volunteers would qualify as the "voting body" in director elections, but I think we never followed through on finalizing that either.  There's actually a Board meeting today, but the agenda is absolutely gi-normous.  I will put this topic on the agenda for the August Board meeting, and make a motion.  It will then go into the minutes exactly how the current incarnation of the BoD comes down on this issue.


As promised, I requested that Board elections be placed on the agenda for this Sunday's Board meeting.  I also requested that one year terms of office be instituted.  Those of you who love to bitch about the "FSP Leadership" better hope these items fail, or it'll be time for you to put up or shut up.  For the record, I intend to vote for both.  ;D
