It is interesting to note that at the peak of the IEFF (Mid 2008-mid 2009) it was almost literally overflowing with members, both regularly-posting and regularly-attending meetings. It is also interesting to note that membership has shrunk since July 2009, as have regular posters. At present there seem to be about....six. If the current trend continues, the IEFF may fail completely within the next year. Sadly, this group of once-friendly and once-easygoing pals was converted into a 'business' that slowly reels the unsuspecting victim in just in time for the dictator- oh, sorry. 'Leader'- to show their true colors. Their motto? "Being a leader means everyone is wrong and you are always right. Apologies? What's that?" The Inland Empire Fan Force has become the Inland Empire Fake Farce- a group of people who are either afraid to oppose the Chancellor, do not know him yet, or have become of the same mind. Perhaps they should just drop the 'I' and 'FF' and just leave it as The Empire. The majority of people are likely to disagree. That is expected, however I know I am not alone in some, if not all of these feelings posted above. Moderators, if you feel there is anything abusive, profane, obscene, or anything else against the posting guidelines, then by all means, do what you wish, with my apologies.
