Oops, they've done it again

RWA is just looking for trouble. Over the past several months, they've tried to institute Graphical Standards that might not allow the posting of member websites (those who have written erotica), the infamous Award Ceremony and, to a lesser degree, the on-going negligence of on-line chapters. Now they're revoked sanction from several previously recognize publishers. And they've irritated those publishers and a goodly number of members in the process?

My only question is WHY? Why all this now when we're nearing the end of the term for those in office? And why this sudden 'urge' to put constraints and limitations on members and publishers alike? What the heck is going on?

I can say one thing definitively. I will NOT vote for any RWA incumbents. They've gotten too much like our local and national politicians by speaking out of both sides of their mouths. I once had a lot of respect for these board members's fading rapidly and I fear what the end result of all these machinations will be--both for the organization and the members.
