In fact, Deron's TFN is that unpopular with UK freecyclers that over 800,000 on 180 groups have left Deron's organisation and are now associated under the FREEGLE organision. This mass migration has taken just ten days to accomplish and groups are leaving deron's network on a daily basis.
Why? Because the local Yahoo-based Group Owners co-ordinating the local groups are fed up with the bullying tactics exhibited by senior level TFN management under Deron's direction and TFNs total lack of willingness to allow UK groups the latitude needed to manage their groups efficiently.
The whole UK split was entirely avoidable had Deron Beal, Nan Bixby and the rest of TFN's senior management taken the concerns of the UK leadership seriously.
When grassroots citizenry speak loudly and with one voice, the din can be deafening. In this case, the silence in the UKs former Freecycle corridors is equally so.....
