There were never any "regular authors" to go "on strike." In the past, when no news copy was allowed, the organizations' secretaries wrote announcements containing no information beyond date and time, because they knew no more. Those, display ads, and columns by the presidents et al., were the entire contents.

I do not have any fences to mend. The people who are not writing what they need to write ALL endorsed every single damn change before it was made.

It's almost like dealing with the CIA. They claim to want to increase participation and financial support, but they withhold any information that might have such an effect.

Perhaps we should stop publishing altogether. Maybe their failure to use the newsletter productively reflects a belief that it is useless -- but the organizations that aren't using it pay the bulk of the cost, and why would they do that if they didn't want to publish it?
