Response to Pretty Pathetic Report from Platt ...
One might think that someone who routinely replies to his own messages under pseudonyms--the same person who disappeared into silence for three months at one point, after being warned about libel law--the same person who resorted to pseudonyms to evade this problem--might be ill suited to accuse other people of being "pathetic."
But I digress.
The thing is, Rick, you are not automatically entitled to know everything about a privately held company. If the company is a nonprofit tax-exempt 501(c)3 such as Alcor, then it has a substantial obligation to disseminate information. But SA is not in that category.
You may feel it is a *good idea* for cryonics organizations to be transparent, and generally I would agree with you. On the other hand SA is not actively seeking clients right now and has been in a transition period.
If the organization remains opaque three or six months from now, you may have more reason to complain.
