    Did you bother to speak to any of those seeking nominations for the WSSRT or did you just reprint the WSR PLC's press release unquestioningly?

    Hi,thanks for asking. I can assure you that we did attempt to reach out to some of those involved, but did not receive a response.

    Did you email wssrtcandidates@gmail.com?

    You seem to have repeated almost verbatim the statements from the PLC and the WSSRT uncritically and with very little scrutiny of those statements.
