There is only one way to interpret a smiley.

If you want to take things on that front, challenge me to take action. I
can just as easily contact two legal bodies and leave it up to them.
Which is surely allot easier and faster, than wasting time on list.
Discussing business matters with people who have little understanding.

I am not trying to rally others to the cause within Gentoo. If others
are not concerned that between $20-$50k has gone missing, unaccounted
for. Much less that the trustees have left Gentoo in very bad legal
standings with the state and feds. Then that is there problem.

I guarantee the state and federal government will care less about
bylaws, elections, a 110 member consensus, and any of those things that
do not matter to them. Which by the way it would not take 110, just a
majority. Not to mention I am sure many will care if/when the state and
federal government do take action.

Please stop with all the back and forth, and do what is required by the
state and federal government. Much less whats responsible and prudent
when handling OTHER peoples money.

I cannot believe two posts now which should have at best maybe 1 reply
keeps turning into lengthy threads. Why there is so much effort to
defend inaction. Which there is no defense or justification that either
the state or federal government will accept.
