Gee that seemed more like a call for some of the other volunteers
_doing_ various projects to give her some direction... but, hey,
that's just my interpretation of things... it could very well have
meant she's "left"... or it could have meant she was still wanting to
be part of SVLUG and was waiting for YOU and HEATHER and the rest of
the volunteer crew to figure out how you were all going to work

The thuggish act was her taking her misperception to the entire list
(and by inference and extension, showing the entire list that she
personally doesn't trust my leadership) rather than emailing me or
talking with me about it personally.  Her lack of trust in my
abilities (and yours) is quite evident, and I'm simply not interested
in continually proving to her (and you) that I know what I'm doing and
I'm acting in SVLUG's best interest.

My recommendation to you both is to concern yourselves with how you
wish to _personally_ assist SVLUG going forward, and not concern
yourselves so much with what others within SVLUG are up to.

It's the 21st century - things are changing within SVLUG, and you're
ALL invited to be a part of it.

President, SVLUG
