Re: Theos-World Getting very tired of this - proposal not off the table, voting postponed

The whole issue of changing the bylaws is barking at the wrong tree.
Membership has been going downhill all over the world except for India and
none of the GC members are talking about fixing it.

As I recall there was a message on the internet posted about a decade ago
which mentioned that during Dora's time in the USA there were 8000 members
and it dropped to around 4000 during John's time and today still hovers
around that number.

No one has challenged these numbers, then  or now,  with accurate figures
along with a statistical analysis of the current rentention rate just like
aging analysis on accounts receivable.

Instead of paying attention to this critical issue, the rule change is
simply a ruse and an attempt by a group to take control of TS secretly
before members found out.

This is simply are the facts.

I welcome everyone's comments.
