Some GFA Members have informed me that mr fibiger apparently recently took it upon themself to again abuse the dubious authority of being the currently sitting yet wholly illegitimate (IMHO, ofc) "president" of the GFA to apparently attempt to smear/embarrass/whatever me once again. I wish I could be surprised. What mr fibiger hid from all the recipients of that e-mail was that they were apparently too scared to include ME, the Dues-Paying Voting Member in good standing of the GFA who incited their e-mail, in the list of the recipients of their garbage. With apologies, I once again must clarify mr fibiger's latest deception:
1. As I very clearly and on-the-record stated (NOT anonymously as in the way the GFA Facebook page is run and as the now infamous 8 Pages of Toilet Tissue found HERE was presented), I do not like nor respect mr fibiger. Not one bit. I think it is safe to say the sentiment is quite mutual. The SIGNED evidence of just part of the depth of my disdain for this individual can be found HERE. (It warrants mentioning that this version mr fibiger distributed was edited, and is not presented in its entirety. HUGE surprise.)
2. Despite having both an ethical and fiduciary responsibility to do so, mr fibiger did not include me in this e-mailing. I am a Dues-Paying Voting Member of the GFA in good standing, and mr fibiger chose to leave me out of this vital GFA communication, whilst I am dealing with a literal life-and-death health issue. THIS is a clear demonstration of the truly despicable personal character of mr fibiger – IMHO, ofc. The broadly beaming showman you saw at the 2019 AGM is only a grotesque show.
3. If mr fibiger and/or the currently sitting board had just been respectful of new ideas which were presented literally years ago (rather than illegally defaming a Member who simply has views different from theirs), no one would have to be scrambling like they are now to try and protect Member’s very lives. They have had almost 4 years to prepare for this, but did nothing other than lie, sling mud, insult, censor, obstruct that which has now been clearly proven to be needed, and illegally defame me. All because I had the "temerity" to hold differing and now proven-to-be-correct views.
4. I am actually grateful to mr fibiger for admitting that the board does not understand how to handle this crisis. I do. I have been living inside the virtual epicenter of it for over two months now, and kept myself, my business, my staff and my house all safe - all while dealing with an unrelated potentially deadly medical condition afflicting me. However, I do not hesitate to point out that what should have been done is that mr fibiger should not have engaged in illegal conduct (defamation is still illegal), and should have been serving the GFA Members all along, rather than devoting their wasted time to some personal and ultimately futile petty grudge they bear toward me. Not to overly immodestly blow my own horn, but I was actually right all along: The GFA desperately needs the precise innovations I have been obstructed from bringing about for absolutely no reason for literally years now. Obstructed by mr fibiger.
5. Please note that mr fibiger had NOTHING to say on this COVID-19 issue until I made sure they were forced/shamed into doing so. The tone and content of the GFA Facebook page also never changed until I was regrettably compelled to force/shame them into doing a pale impersonation of my editing style and changing it into something approximating actually being sometimes useful to the GFA Members, too.
6. From a legal standpoint, the bylaws of the GFA have next to nothing to do with what action must be taken at this point. mr fibiger obviously continues to labour under the declaration they once utterly hysterically hissed at me; “We’re a private club, so we do as we want!” No, you don’t. Not anymore.
mr fibiger (IMHO, of course) is an individual who has without reason obstructed my efforts to help the GFA Members for going on four years now, who has willingly engaged in blatantly illegal activity, who has steadfastly refused to respectfully consider alternative views, who has clearly advocated for the censoring of the free exchange of information regarding the GFA to the GFA Members, who wholly illegitimately clings to the title of "president" of the GFA, and who had NOTHING to say about the COVID-19 issue, thereby clearly placing the very lives of GFA Members in danger, until I forced/shamed them into do something about it. Something which I have been offering to do to FREE for going on four years now.
This is not Leadership. This is not even being a custodian. This is reprehensible.
If There Is Nothing To Hide, Simply Stop Hiding.
(and stopping the deceiving would be kinda cool, too, please.)
Together, we really CAN do MUCH better.
Thank you very much for your DEEPLY appreciated ongoing support in 2020 and beyond!! :-)
