Your opinion is noted.  Yes I complain when there is something wrong, how
else do things chamge?

6 of the e-mail sent to the herald were cc'd to Skargarrd herald and
forwarded to Namron by her.  Still no answer. 

doesn't have to be 15 minutes before the meeting to say, WE ARE AT THE

the Seneachal and I are not the issue. 

nor am I complaining to hear my own e-mails.  I have had to work through
a herald in another kingdom because I am not able to get at the local
herald and the canton herald is not skilled enough to answer all the

I am just asking for simple communication.  not too much to ask.

    A SINGLE RESPONSE.  And I know the Senechal and I are not on the
    best of terms, But I had to ask for the location 5 hours before
    the last meeting.  nothing had been said.  weather called for
    freezing rain and nothing had been said.  I ended up not being
    able to attend because we had freezing rain here 85 miles from
    Norman.  And if you note, I stated I would be willing to
    contribute to the cost of the room, I think most would rather
    than have to go to a restaurant and feel oblagated to order food.

    Even the Herald doesn't answer e-mails. so why post e-mail
    addresses at all??


  First off, just because you've sent an email doesn't mean that it got
  there.  I send emails all the time that are trapped in spam filters,
  that get "accidentally" deleted, or just disappear into the ether
  that is the Internet that we know and love.  If I was trying to
  decide if I should make a two-hour drive in inclement weather, I
  would *not* be counting on an email message.

  I don't live in Namron, of course.  I love to come home and visit my
  Society family and friends there.  And I try to keep up on what's
  going on by information inputs like this mailing list.  I don't think
  "we can't find a regular place to have a meeting" is a new issue...it
  was going on 10, 15, and 20 years ago when I was there.  And I
  suspect it'll continue long after I'm gone.  Unless the Barony is
  going to go and purchase something (and I'm betting Matthias doesn't
  have that much money laying around), this issue will continue.

  Radei, we haven't met yet.  The only impressions I'm getting of you
  is what I see here on the list, and so far I'm under-impressed.  I
  appreciate the fact that you have to make an extra effort to
  participate, but it seems like you have a lot of gripes about how
  things are going.  If I was a baronial officer, and I was getting
  constant emails from someone, and they were growing to be a larger
  pain in the neck over time, I might start "accidentally" deleting
  them too.  I won't speak for Thomas, since he has been (to my
  experience) a very professional baronial seneschal.  I'm guessing
  he's not going out of his way to dodge you, but he may also be in a
  position where he can't easily reply to your messages.  As a start,
  the man works in the field of meteorology, so inclement weather may
  be a busy time for him regardless of what else is going on.

  I certainly don't want to infringe upon anyone's desire to sit around
  and bitch.  I do it, all the time.  Just be aware that bitching on a
  mailing list like this, "official" or not, is likely a form of mental
  masturbation.  I wouldn't count on the world to change because of it.

  Care, Bubba
