---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Lorna Dietz Date: Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 9:26 AM Subject: Re: [NaFFAA_forum] Feature: Amidst Scandals & Shrinking Funds, Will NaFFAA Survive? To: Cc: Jose Pecho , Macabenta Greg , Rozita Lee To everyone in this NaFFAA_Forum: Please do not reply to this email. This is an announcement. PLEASE CEASE AND DESIST ANY OF THESE ONLINE DISCUSSIONS IMMEDIATELY ESPECIALLY SINCE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ANSWERING ON BEHALF OF NaFFAA ARE NOT THE OFFICIAL SPOKESPERSONS. I am pertaining to Dr. Joy Bruce's responses to Romy Marquez in this particular email thread. Joy, you might think you are doing the right thing --- but you are not. Your actions might be interpreted as being damaging to the good work that is currently being undertaken (no matter how good your intentions are) and the struggles that we have had to undergo so we can grow as an organization... Maybe you should be reading the August 2009 issue of Filipinas Magazine so you can see for yourself what dedicated work NaFFAA is doing in Region 8 (Northern CA). These are just a few examples of dedicated volunteer work that do not ask for laurels. Joy, you said that NaFFAA needs to change but what is happening that you do not realize that NaFFAA has been changing, quietly, in the past few years, as a result of our growth and experiences... I have the unique perspective of being able to say this to you with confidence because of my many responsibilities within NaFFAA, newbie that I am, with respect to your experience. I am NaFFAA's Online Coordinator. So, I have the right to let you know that these discussions are very subjective, one-sided, and untrue. Please take these discussions off-line. This is a very damaging accusation that you are making, Mr. Romy Marquez. You and Bobby Reyes will have to show clear proof that Greg Macabenta received $300,000 from Wells Fargo Bank on behalf of NaFFAA and got commissions from that. If this were true, then NaFFAA wouldn't have had any financial problems and neither would Filipinas Magazine. I want both Romy Marquez and Bobby Reyes to give proof about their accusation because what they do online reeks of them (are they called pseudo-journalists?) trying to get high google rankings for their attacks on NaFFAA. Yes, I'm on to what you're doing... If there's no proof, Bobby Reyes and Romy Marquez need to retract their op-eds and apologize --- and make sure that every internet article bearing this retraction gets the high google rankings. Is this clear? Thank you for listening. Please direct your questions to Greg Macabenta and Rozita Lee in a private email. and Sincerely, Lorna Dietz NaFFAA Region 8 Vice Chair NaFFAA Online Coordinator and cc: Jose Pecho, NaFFAA Region 8 Chair Greg Macabenta, Rozita Lee
