Please point to the threat? Nobody has made a threat to the Co-chairs. We have requested that they reverse an error. Nothing more. We have stated that if they do not reverse that error, we will have to avail ourselves of the documented appeal process. This is not a threat. No harm comes to the Co-chairs from the appellate process.

Again, I don’t see harassment or threats... I see polite discourse asking them to reverse their error and documenting the fact that we will appeal if they don’t do so. 

I appreciate the job they do. I’ve been doing the equivalent job in another region for more than a decade now. I’m well aware of the time and effort required and I know well how the job should be done.
