PostSubject: "Colorado Gliders" Facebook Group   Sat Apr 12, 2014 10:42 am

I can no longer find this group on facebook as it was changed to a "secret" group.  




Some months back, I joined this facebook group and it was pretty cool, but then the owner and admin gave it up and let Kelly Swanson take it over.  She and her husband, Michael are the admin, as well as a few more people.  They do not allow unsolicited advice in that group.  If you see or read about someone doing something that is unsafe for gliders, you are not allowed to say anything about it.  They have encouraged breeding rescues and gliders without lineage.  They are very argumentative and have harassed people who do not agree with them.   

Make sure you view "oldest first" to read these screenshots in order:  http://s44.photobucket.com/user/Usha77/library/Colorado%20Gliders%20facebook%20group

The only experience I had is...not much, because I was kicked out of the group. No warning. No explanation and literally for no reason. I wasn't involved in any arguments, drama, I don't breed, "flip", vend and barely even interacted. I have no idea why I was kicked out. I then saw multiple other say the same thing. Really, it shouldn't even be considered a group.

I witnessed this myself in my short time there.

I, too, was banned - the official reason was because I am not a CO resident. That is their rule, and I am all fine with respecting rules. I joined for a specific reason, but that is moot. They had no interest in helping me and the gliders out, so I was banned.

The issue *I* take with them is that after my ban, Kelly Swanson posted in her "group" derogatory remarks about me to her group. She used my introduction of myself, twisted my words, spoke ill of me and then DISCOURAGED her group from ever participating in railroads to help get rescues to new homes because she "knows better." I guess she thought that I would never see the remarks since she had banned me.

Plain and simple, the administration of that group has NO INTEREST in the best practices and well being of gliders. Their only interest is in power as they perceive it. Colorado is done a huge disservice by the group.

A conversation I had with her a couple of months after I left the group - she initiated the messages.
