I believe that the information if and when the truth comes out will either
be moderated or censored and will not be allowed on the list, I think it
would make you Marion and the rest of the Nagdu leadership look very bad.
I have well placed faith in Fidelco and I know more of the facts than you
may be aware of. "my sources will remain anonymous" sound familiar?
Marion you have been lied to and the longer and harder you push the more
foolish you and the rest of the Nagdu leadership behind you are going to
appear. It's a shame that Nagdu has to be guided with anger and paranoia.
This could be a well respected advocacy group.
