Brad - has Network Of Disclosure contacted CGC, linked them here, and asked for further information/cooperation?
Hi Pov -
I see the fact that I didn't answer this question amidst all the other postings here concerns you. My apologies. I'll answer it with this:
After three years of CGC stonewalling on this, I have personally given up on expecting CGC to take action on this. So I am taking this case directly to the collecting community. I also know that CGC is 100% aware of this thread and of the issues involved. The have been, for over three years. What is there that I could tell them that they don't already know? That books that Ewert submitted are still out there in collections?
Pov, you've known my position right from the start: I approach these issues from a consumer advocacy direction. CGC has had countless opportunities to correct the Ewert submission situation.
worked for the average collector, is the quiet cellphone call, the private chat, the courteous chummy exchange. Nothing ever gets done. Frankly, I'm not particularly concerned with what is in CGC's best interests at this point. They watch out for their own interests quite nicely thank you. What I am
interested in is raising awareness among collectors.
I think the nature of this presentation has been extremely successful in that mission.
I agree the core of the thread is proactive: listing numbers, issues, dates of submission etc. And the thrust of the thread was a reactive action to how CGC handled it. Often reactive IS the parent of proactive. That is not what I meant here, though.
I simply meant, now that all this has been/is being detailled, have any officials of the Network Of Disclosure contacted CGC, linked them here and sought their cooperation formally?
But if you say things like "I have personally given up" or "What is there I could tell them" you are taking it personally, reacting to your frustration, and an opportunit may have been lost because of that. But I DID specify an official
be contacting CGC, and am curious if this has actually happened..
Just a clarifying thing: I actually, did not know who you were when I first came here. I suck at names and actually never knew your name on the CGC boards beyond "Brad". You sent me a Hello PM when I first posted and I sent you a hello back but it was only a few days ago I found out it was you. So Hey Brad!
