Is this a take your ball and go home type of thing?

No.  Sadly, it is a "we won't tolerate questions and opinions we don't like" type of thing

(The secret cabal of production optics has claimed two more victims. That much closer to controlling the organization. Anyone who gets in their way will suffer the same fate or worse.)

Sadly, I think Linda is correct

I'm afraid the entire HQ leadership needs to go, starting with Phil and Kim, closely followed by Steve

How can this not be demanded at this point?

So Jay and Chuck quit because the BOD was intolerant of them?

It amazes me how closely USPSA politics appears to perfectly mirror local gun club politics.

So was Jay just making crap up? Telling half truths? Say it ain't so...

Or should we believe he took a fallacious Libel charge so serious that he had to quit?

That shouldn't come as a surprise.

Just speculating, but if he were threatened with a libel suit - even if he knew it were false - and was told by the head shed to retain a lawyer, what is his upside in continuing to fight it?  

 

The head shed has their own attorney, paid for by all of us dues-paying members.  Jay would have an attorney paid for by himself.  For a volunteer, unpaid, position.  I know that integrity counts for a lot (at least it does to me), but when you're forced to defend your integrity with your own dime, while knowing that your dues are being used to fight against you.  The fuckitall response is probably pretty strong.

 

Just speculating...

I love when retards threaten lawsuits.  Do they think watching NCIS makes them a lawyer?  Fucking JOKE!  What are the damages ( think how did you loose money)....jimmy was mean to me your honor....yeah that will work until the litigious retards get their first legal bill and have to pay a retainer.   The thing to say to any asshole that threatens a lawsuit is FUCK YOU BRING IT ON.

I don't care who is wrong or right here.  I don't know anyone involved and therefore have no personal or emotional connection to any of them.  But I do care about the shooting sports.  This is an instance where the shooters, the paying members and participants, can make a difference.  Vote with you feet.  Don't support entities that are the center of drama.  Be outspoken about it.  Use your numbers and social media skills to send a message that we want to shoot our fucking sport and we don't want to hear the fucking bullshit anymore.

MFCEO should interview Jay and Chuck on his podcast. The question would be a simple one: WTF is going on with USPSA HQ?

I know I'm pissing into the wind trying to get the "Jay-sonites" to see what I'm saying but think of this - half of the people on this site were threatened with a Libel suit by Jay's friends on the A6 fb page. We all laughed about it and kept up the pressure. Jay quit. What do you think the difference is?

Sure seems like Jay has been feeding A6 shit and A6 kept asking for seconds.

Bond and Noise are whipping the shit up to a froth on the A6 Facebook.  Maybe ya'll should just put them in charge.

With all this asshattery going on at HQ, how long till Vincent Pinto works with these disgruntled former BoD volunteers to bring more IPSC clubs to the states?

Okay, who is going to go to A6 FB to tell them that they are bringing disrepute to the sport and they just need to be respectful and patient to let the process work?
