Is this REALLY what the SoA membership wants, or has the society just been hijacked by some power hungry fools?

I assume it's about the Academy blocking the recognition of FSA-GI, but I would still like to see whatever they're wasting our dues on.

seems pretty reasonable. wish they could do without all the whereas nonsense and just lay it out.

but yeah-directly undermining an entity and threatening to sue that entity on antitrust violations is no way to keep seats at the table.
