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.
I'm no "Jay-sonite" - never met him, don't know him. But I look at it like this:
"I'm gonna sue all you motherfuckers for libel (or lible as one notable A6 member spelled it)" - one person or a couple of people speaking to a broad group of people. What's the probability of this happening? One or a couple of people ponying up to retain a lawyer in a suit against multiple defendants, and showing damage against each and every one? Seems like about zero to me.
Pres & ED threatening libel against an AD, presumably on behalf of USPSA. Now, the organization is footing the bill in a targeted suit against one person. Did the organization suffer damages? Yeah probably, but one could legitimately argue who caused them (as not being the AD). Either way you look at it, much higher probability of (significant) out-of-pocket expenses by the individual.
Now I'm no attorney, and it's been a couple weeks since I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, so take that with a grain of salt. Just my $0.02.
