My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Well, as has been quoted elsewhere in the thread, according to the actual ACBL regulation, he did not meet the requirement to have his master points resinstated. If he were to renew for three years, he would.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
No, obviously not (I never said I thought Paul L's response was one I approved of if that's what you're implying) . . .
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Yes, I understand that the economics are such that it is frequently in a business's best interest to do this, but I still think it's shameful (and I respect businesses that attempt to satisfy a customer, but still stand up for themselves and their employees when confronted with ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high

My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
This *does* seem like it was (or could have been) a misunderstanding. I think you undermine your credibility when you loudly accuse someone of lying (with no evidence) when there is a reasonable alternative explanation. Even if this is the ACBL's fault for communicating poorly, it does not mean ...
Fu and Li Win Women's Pairs
If the comment would have been made respectfully, I might agree, but the way it was phrased was insulting to Fu/Li
ACBL and Live for Clubs
All good points, Richard. I was trying to get an idea if the objection was ACBL specific or just resistance to doing things in a new way. I know it took a lot to convince my mother to stop sending checks in the mail (which at least to me seems ...
ACBL and Live for Clubs
Would you using something like Venmo/Paypal etc. each month to pay the ACBL? How is payment currently being done that is more secure? Is the issue that you specifically do not trust the ACBL with your information or do you not leave your credit card on file with anyone ...
