Poor Frank... oops I was talking about Bruce Kelly and his breach of

HPR is the voice of HPR and not publishing it makes the hobby look like

Mail fraud is investigated by the US Postal Authorities.
If the BoD is in the business of enforcing or at least checking for
compliance for Federal government (As they seem to have done in Kosdon's
case.) Then they better point their enforcement/comliance sites to this
other member and suspend his membership until after elections.
What's fair is fair - or was there another reason for the suspension?
