[nabs-l] NFB/ACB

There are whole books on the subject.  Short form:  One group wanted 
to take control of the organization from another.  They tried a few 
things, and that didn't work, and things got ugly between the 
factions.  They got uglier until finally the straw that broke the 
camel's back (there's disagreement as to what the straw was) led to 
several allied states in the challengers' faction deciding to form 
their own organization because they'd been effectively defeated and 
silenced within the NFB.

Nobody involved had clean hands, though both sides claim they did and 
detail how the other side played dirty.  Just about everyone involved 
in the original split is dead now, and the ensuing war has been 
fought by people who are getting on in years now, even though it 
lasted for almost two decades before settling down into what you see 
now.

The details fill at least two whole books.
