Regarding the LPF Situation
I posted this to Facebook (and referred to it in several related emails) before waking up enough to think “hey, the blog is probably the best place to archive/reference this.”

To whom it may concern,
I’ve received several emails requesting phone discussions on the matter of the Libertarian Party of Florida’s recent capitulation to August Invictus’s threat of a frivolous lawsuit unless it retracted an 18-month old press release, my contention that that capitulation represented a breach of fiduciary duty on the part of executive committee members who voted for it, and my call for replacement of all those executive committee members at the coming state convention.
I won’t be discussing this matter on the phone, and especially not _privately_ on the phone, for two reasons:
1) Verbal discussions are subject to erroneous recollection; and
2) I am familiar with the tactics Augustus and his supporters use, including but not limited to false and/or selective claims regarding discussions.
The only exception I might (_might_) make for phone calls on the subject would be for open, pre-announced, recorded conference calls, and even that doesn’t sound like a good idea.
My strong preference for private discussion of the matter is by email, using PGP-signed messages so that misquotes (accidental or intentional) and decontextualized quotes can be corrected in a provable way.
