Well sir, first I want to say thank you for your input.
Had I been the only person who'd received the email that's probably what I would have done. Once I became aware that this was sent out to quite a few (we now know 2600) I rightly surmised that these addresses were derived solely because of this persons position with KCBS and not as "just a member" or from public information.
I also rightly surmised that these addresses were not available to every other person who was running for the BOD which I felt was taking unfair advantage of one's position and is something the membership as a whole "might" want to know when looking to vote for change to the status quo.
If you don't agree with my thoughts that's your right but you've got to admit it takes more "sack" to publicly go to a wide group and call foul when you see something (and take the heat like your post) then to just quietly confront one person which is equal in most cases to allowing it to just slide on by and sweep it under the rug or to gossip and snipe behind someone's back which (in my opinion) is done way too much nowadays.
