Comments

Bylaw "Situation"

I do hope Monday's meeting will be well attended because of the "Bylaw Situation".  A proposed set of bylaw changes have been drafted and signed by 30+ members intended to keep the "community" in KBOO Community Radio by giving KBOO membership more control over KBOO decisions and policy.

 

Bylaw "Situation"

I do hope Monday's meeting will be well attended because of the "Bylaw Situation".  A proposed set of bylaw changes have been drafted and signed by 30+ members intended to keep the "community" in KBOO Community Radio by giving KBOO membership more control over KBOO decisions and policy.

 

Bylaw changes

As far as I heard this change was to eliminate ALL of the bylaws? Is this true? How would this be fair? Would we scrap the whole Constitution if it didn't suit us or would we take a look at altering certain aspects of it if we needed to? Seems more logical to me.

crazy folks

Yep, logic doesn't need to be present for people to make comments about "nothing." As the election approaches there are several people, some of whom have sued KBOO, who are willing to reduce the organization to nothing if they don't get their way, just like little babies. But not cute babies.

These people destroy every non-profit they involve themselves in. They have no interest in working collaboratively and do not know the meaning of the word compromise.

Some are just plain crazy and some have nothing better to do with their time, so they indulge their obsessive personalities and fantasies by rehashing their internal dialogue over and over until to them, it is real.

Whether their lawsuits, flame wars, etc., damage the organization they claim to value is irrelevant. If they can't control something, they will try to kill it. They think that by screaming fire, people will believe there is a fire. They think every one but them is under an illusion. That other people are unaware of "the real truth."

Those people are fanatics, lunatics, professional victims who are willing to bring down any organization that doesn't bow to their will. Remember that. These flame wars are initiated by people who don't play well with others, who don't contribute to the community anything valuable, who are so impotent they must try to infect an organization with their misguided ideas or try to destroy it. Got that. I'm talking about you. Yes you!

crazy

the idea that the bylaw change is to eliminate bylaws is, with due respect, insane.  i won't bother to address the legalities of an org without bylaws, and simply point out that the change is designed to prevent people who are suing your org for their own petty powerplays from serving on your board; do you like spending $50k worth of hard-won member donations to prevent nefarioius use of the member list?  that's your name, your phone number, your address!  does someone attempting to use your member information for nefarious purposes sound like the kind of person you want running your org?  i sure hope not, or else we've obviously got much bigger problems.  goodness!
