No statement needed. Thiis is a busy time of year for us and when posts become personal attacks or slander then we will simply delete the entire thread. Facts are fine and heated debate is tolerated. However, innuendo and speculation is not going to be spewed on this Message Board.
Thank you. Not sure what the offending speculation or innuendo was. Just glad that posting links and discussing the lawsuit was acceptable. I understand why libel, with evidence of actual malice, won’t be tolerated. Less that threshold, I assume we can discuss the information we have gleaned and posit our opinions.
It would be unfortunate and chilling if we could not come here and openly discuss the maneuvering of local clubs that impact our children without worrying that some clubs/people would be unhappy or concerned with the perception and cause open dialogue to be shut down by submitting a complaint. In fact, since you saw fit to share my message, I would hope you share theirs as well.
The lack of transparency and sometimes honesty by some clubs makes places like this so valuable. Clubs regularly promote positives and hide negatives. That is normal. Fortunately, this has been a place where pros/cons and different perspectives on clubs has been shared. I would hate to think that could be lost.
For every person that posts in the club site, there are many more lurkers, trying to learn something because club directors are not always accessible and forthright with them. Even those posters that may disagree with each other on most things would likely concur that the opportunity to freely discuss facts and information is of great value. Again, thank you for providing that environment.
