From: Patent Tactics, George Brock-Nannestad


the reason that I am not in the ARSC directory is that I am not a member any 

In 2012 I decided that I did not want to remain a member of an association that 
condoned theft from public archives. This was very apparent from the non-action 
(despite requests from others than myself) of the then Board in distancing ARSC 
from such criminal activities. 

The Board apparently considered that it was worth losing one member rather than 
publicly take a moral stance.

There was one vociferous ARSC member (not a Board member) who on ARSClist 
declared that he would welcome back and hug the perpetrator after having sat 
his time. Another ARSClist correspondent made such verbal attacks on me (that 
were not moderated) that the textual content of the postings was removed in the 
digest, without removing the fact that the postings (including word count) had 
been there. I have the original postings. Surely the ARSClist administrator 

ARSClist is not ARSC, but I decided to limit my contributions, which had been 
frequent (and possibly pompous).

My advice concerning published information on acoustic recording is to consult 
Peter Copeland's Manual.

Best wishes,
