From the computer desk of FACTNets news blog editor and discussion board administrator.
I would like to take this time to comment on the faceless volunteers and the immense and critical help they provide that keeps FACTNet's website and discussion board functioning. Not to mention the fact that the discussion board has been able to go back to posting without a fee.
There are a handful of volunteers that I would love to thank by name but cannot due to the fact that they want, and some that need, to stay anonymous due to possible retaliation from certain sinister and powerful cults. And if you don't think these as viable fears think again. There are many groups that stalk and harass ex-members such as Scientology, Mormoms, and the JWs to name just a few. So at their bequest they will remain anonymous.
There is a lot of work to keep a website and discussion board of our size running smoothly. Not to mention the time and labor it takes to run a non-profit organization. Meticulously keeping the books in order, (we have been audited several times due to false allegations from unknown cults. And BTW FYI we had all of our ducks in a perfect row each time) paying bills, upgrading systems and security measures and handling all the techie stuff that I have no idea how to do. And all this is done pro bono and they receive nothing for their time and labors...not even a public "atta boy" due to the need of anonymity.
So here's to you all that selflessly donate your labors for such a wonderful cause. There's also a friend of FACTNet and a personal friend of mine who no longer is with FACTNet (but they have told me to call anytime I have a problem and they will help all they can) who's labors kept FACTNet's cybernetic technologies running without a glitch for years. You know who you are and we all personally thank you for all that you did for us... ;)
So here's to you all who work your hearts out behind the curtain without a thought for yourself... Thank you all... You are my heroes...
