Re: The Rebrand is Essential to our Future

CTC has been campaigning as a Charity (CTC Charitable Trust) since 2004. The Trust was merged into the Club after the 2012 Charity Conversion. Quite. A lot of the opinions voiced on this topic relate to wider issues rather than the specific brand change. Primarily: 1. "I don't like the rebrand...

Re: Could someone please explain

Re: Je Suis Negative Git!!

...thanks gaz ...I will see what happens first ...and of course ...report it here ...the spiel in the complaints link seemed to suggest that once the complaint was under way it itself was protected by Data Protection ...so I may find myself gagged regarding any further comment...!

Re: Negative Git!!

er, your quoting of my pm sounds a little like you think it was a negative thing - not so, I was only trying to get some sort of explanation for you from a source more likely to reply than the CEO.. Of course there are two sides to every story, but I can't see any justification for calling someone ...

Re: Negative Git!!

Wow! Agreed, completely out of order. Though just so we're clear about what preceded it, would Velocio mind providing the message which he sent to Oliver verbatim (omitting, if necessary, any personal information)? ...my original post on this thread contains all that's transpired from and to me ......

Re: Negative Git!!

I can appreciate that the officers may be feeling a bit besieged, but that's really not how to handle disagreement, being neither a polite dismissal/marginalisation or a reasoned challenge - probably both ...
