Im not aware of the full circumstances... so, I take no sides.
If the original poster would like the details of an independant media contact already investigating the way our banding instituition operates, please get in touch.
The contact will deal only with fact.
The 'independent media contact' will only deal with 'fact', but the tMP contributors are expected to discuss a situation then form and express opinions on suggestions, innuendo and partial disclosure. Hmmmm...but there are general principles involved that might be discussed. The mods have seen fit to let the thread run, despite two suggestions that it be locked, so I don't think there is any question of debate being stifled .Unfortunatly , on TMP, I expect the discussion will be brushed under the carpet.
(we don't like to see our movement criticised)
I don't expect the full 'facts' to be disclosed on here. I would think it's a rather complex situation, hardly suited for resolution by 'trial by forum'.
I'm interested to know more about this investigation into the way banding operates, though. Is this a secret investigation, or can anyone join in? When are the results likely to be published and where? I'm sure that tMPers would be only too happy to help, if it means an improved 'institution'. Who is this investigator?
