In Reply to: Contest Organizer Disclaimer posted by RogueQ on June 12, 2012 at 16:25:50:
Below is an actually email conversation between me and Becky Weak, a Member and past Board Member of the
Greater Omaha Barbeque Society...
Please read and let me know if you would be a part of an organization where long standing members act this way towards other members...
To start I sent the organization an email about a disclaimer and this is what transpired with Becky Weak.

Re: GOBS Disclaimer for LaPlatte.
I am sorry as I thought everyone on the GOBS list was a member of GOBS as I am. The email was intended for current GOBS members and I am sorry that you were on the list that was supplied to me. I will not include you in anymore of the GOBS emails that I send out.
Once again I am sorry.

I AM A MEMBER OF GOBS !!!!! I AM ALSO A PAST BOARD MEMBER !!!! IT IS IN THE BY-LAWS THAT THE MEMBERSHIP LIST IS NOT RELEASED!!!!! SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU CAN NOT SEND OUT THEIR PETTY GRIPES........... IF I WAS STILL ON THE BOARD, I WOULD RECOMEND THAT YOUR MEMBERSHIP BE REVOKED BECAUSE YOUDID THIS AGAINST THE BY-LAWS....... ......................................................................... GET A LIFE!!!!!
I cannot believe that you responded to my email this way AFTER I told you that I was sorry, very classy for a person of your age. First of all, it is absolutely disturbing that you did not have the courtesy to respond to my email in a adult-like manner but rather as a little cry baby throwing a temper tantrum. Second, as a “past board member” you would think that one would have a little more professionalism, tact and not respond the way you did, and to top it off proceed to tell me to “GET A LIFE!!!!!” Very nice...
Is that how you would like to be treated or talked to? I think not, especially after an apology such as the one I gave. It is sickening to think that a fellow GOBS member would treat someone this way for sending out an email with concerns about the organizations contest disclaimer.
Finally due to your lack of information, I did not release one person’s name on a membership list. I actually took an email I received on May 3, 2012, that was sent out by Darrin Branson, and hit reply all and which it had the email addresses on it, and wrote my email. So Ms. Weak, as far as breaking a by-law, you are completely mistaken, so please get facts straight before you write or speak.
At this point, I am done trying to be sorry to you for something that was sent out to all GOBS members rather than just the board. I do not care if you would recommend that my membership be revoked because I do not want anything to do with such a person(s) like you.
Have a nice day Ms. Weak.
Is that just a lovely way to treat people !!!! GOBS is doing it right - OH AND BY THE WAY I AM NO LONGER INVOLVED WITH THE ORGANIZATION....
