Huh? If you cleared up the accounting problems, why did you come into
this thread claiming that there are accounting problems? Did SPI undo
all the process changes you put in place in another week or two?

Maybe you cleared up some accounting symptoms but not the problems. I
mean, that's good too, but who's fixing the problems you left?

Sure, but you have no fine clue how to work with people you can't
raise or fire, as far as I've seen.

Erm, *I* raised the argument and I didn't include that as I didn't
notice mention it in the record. Wasn't there any problem with the
president taking control of financial office? If not, I'll wait
for some other of SPI board to comment.

How long was it neglected when Branden took the post?

Sure, fine. So no, you can't substantiate it beyond trying to
blame the whole SPI thing on Branden?
