  • You know, Bill called me when he found out he would be accepting the job and I told him rather frankly that he was crazy for even thinking about taking the job with this sinking ship and that, aside from the need for transparency, if he could do nothing else it would be to make sure TPF stop treating volunteers and donors like expendable shit found on the bottom of their shoes.

    The problem with this organization is not money or a lack thereof. An organization that has no capacity to thank its donors prop

      You forgot to mention one problem which has sometimes plagued TPF. People who are a part of it and do nothing but complain about this and that, that and this and hinder progress. People who say they will do things, then don't come through. I think I'm still waiting for a promised newsletter from you from back in '02 to put on the TPF website.

      Allison always returned my emails on TPF issues. Lenzo always returned my emails on TPF issues. In fact, I think everyone has. Maybe it was selective silence.

      As someone who has been "within" TPF for some years now, I think it's very tiring hearing people bitch and moan, but not do anything. Then, when they say they will.. don't. Volunteering is a thankless and time consuming not-for-pay-or-fame job. It's easy to be an armchair quarterback, but more difficult to be pro-active and fill the gaps and holes being complained about.

      Isn't it time to stop flinging poo at TPF? I know as someone who is tired of seeing more poo flung than flowers, I think it is.
