This, as previously noted, has _not_ been true -- any more than your
prior claims about supposed collapse of SVCS and BAFUG.  Chris Verges,
immediately after barraging, here, his "friend" Paul Reed with questions
posed in a strikingly inquisitorial fashion, made a particular point of
proclaiming that he was "not an SBAY member" -- thereby apparently
attempting to imply some sort of studied neutrality.

I asked (in reply) if he were not, however, a longtime personal friend
and former co-worker of the person who had twice threatened to remove
our elected president from office.  The point being, of course, that
_full_ disclosure on his part would have been appreciated, since he was
supposedly examining his biases or lack thereof.

I have already pointed out that your claim was baseless once.  However,
I'm not very surprised to see it persist -- along with a large number of
other attempts to distract attention from the _actual_ issue.  

Which Paul has recently managed to identify both articulately and with
_genuine_ impartiality (and concern for SVLUG's well-being), rising
above the obvious flamebait.
