    It's almost three weeks since the new AFA President logged on to the AFA Forums. Apparently, he has little interest in seeing, or replying to, any responses to his post?

    Keep in mind that a request from the regulars of these forums, to sever its connection with the AFA, primarily because there was little involvement in them from members of the AFA Committee of Management, was denied by the CoM on the 29th August 2019.
    Perhaps they are short of people/time?
    Obviously!

    And apparently becoming AFA President is something that one adds to their Twitter profile, before informing the paid-up members of the AFA of the change.
    It's getting to be a title like Warden of the Cinque Ports, innit?

    It's now approaching four weeks since the new AFA President last logged on to these forums.

    Note that the AFA decided in August 2019 that "the Forum would remain under the AFA whilst the AFA is an ongoing entity."

    If the AFA considers these forums to be an asset of the AFA, then why in the fuck aren't members of its committee of management active on it?

    "the Forum would remain under the AFA whilst the AFA is an ongoing entity."

    Highly debatable whether it has been anything other than an ex entity for quite some time.

    I've repeatedly asked Adam and Karen, as members of the AFA Executive who should be most involved in communicating with members, when Andrew Skegg's name (and possibly the names of others) is going to appear on the AFA's About Us page, given the following statement from the AFA to its members on the 21st October 2019:

    Quote AFA said
    “Thank you for your patience. As you are probably aware, the AFA has struggled for several months to fill several positions. We’re pleased to announce that several new volunteers have joined the committee.

    Andrew Skegg has rejoined the AFA. We’re excited to have Andrew back on board as his calm and reasoned demeanour will be a strong asset moving forward. Andrew was a key part in the successful “Unholy Trinity Downunder” tour several years ago, which saw Matt Dillahunty, Seth Andrews and Aron Ra tour the [sic] Australia. We look forward to working with him.

    Adam Reakes has also joined the committee and was elected president on Wednesday the 18th of September. Adam hosted The Herd Mentality Podcast for several years and also assisted with both the Unholy Trinity tour and the Census No Religion campaign."
    However, the silence is deafening! They don't seem to give a shit about communicating with an AFA Life Member (or any AFA member), or updating the website (which has a number of other problems that I've attempted to bring to their attention, with no response). It makes one think that possibly they were bullshitting about Andrew Skegg and the others?

    And it's now five weeks since the President, whose most recent post (out of a total of three) was in this thread, has logged on to the forums. It's almost as if the current AFA CoM doesn't give a shit about the forums?

    The Possibilities are:
    1. The AFA CoM is dead, and bots are replying.
    2. The CoM are a bunch of alien reptiloids who have yet to master a human language.
    3. The CoM has been infiltrated by "Hillsong"
    4. They are all stupid/lazy.
    5. All of the above.
    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    Anyway, my financial membership lapsed in August and despite that email promising 'big new things and please send us your money again' i've not seen anything. Basically, the AFA is currently a scam. You get absolutely zero for your membership fee. You may as well set fire to your $20 note for all the use giving it to the AFA is.
