Thomas Dalton, can you please stop wasting our
lawyer's time and patience
with your constant nit-picking? You are not achieving anything by this.
In fact, I would like to ask the list administrators to put you on
moderation if this continues. Seriously, grow up.
I agree entirely, this entire inquisition here is inappropriate. The
WMF doesnt have a policy about performing mandatory background checks
on it's employees, so there is no reason to expect them to know all
the details about the lives of all their employees. If the foundation
did not know "this", it's because of a failure on the part of Ms.
Doran to tell them such pertinent information.
No money is missing, nobody knew about her record, there is no reason
we should have expected anybody to have known anything, and the WMF
did a decent job in responding to the story when they were alerted to.
Any allegations of wrong doing or "gross negligence" are unreasonable
and completely unfounded.
You're not even reading what I'm saying, are you? I was *defending*
the WMF by pointing out that they didn't know in advance, then Mike
comes along and contradicts me suggesting that they in fact did. If
they didn't know, it's really not their fault, but if they did,
failure to do anything about it is gross incompetence.
