I do know what's been going on. I've been discussing this on
Chirurgeon's List, and I rather suspect BoD members are tired of
hearing from me ;-0

Neither I nor most of the rest of the Chirurgeonate have a problem
with the mundane service, other than,perhaps, one or two indivduals.
What we have a problem with is how poorly we were treated, and are
continuing to be treated, by SCAdians. At the moment, we're waiting to
hear from our Ombudsman, however their computer had a melt down, and
everything is being further delayed. It doesn't help at all that there
are wild rumors going around that the reason for shutting down the
Chirurgeonate had to do with life threatening errors by various
individual Chirurgeons, when that is absolutely not the case. The
enemies of the Chirurgeonate are having a field day, and it's wearing
on all of us.

Oh, don't worry, they're hearing from me, and the rest of us. In
detail. At full volume.
