The Truth is Out There

In another forum altogether, a former officer of a group to which I belong was lamenting about the ten plagues and more that befall anyone who volunteers. Most of them will be familiar to anyone who's ever blundered into a position of leadership in a volunteer organization. But this one, this one is classic. Herewith, edited slightly to keep it anonymous as we are evidently dealing with the reflexively litigious:

And nearly one year prior to that, a member from Utah actually
started pursuing the legal action to sue me because she *knew* I was
in conspiracy with a [local group] from the southern branch to take
control of her computer through the [Main Group's] web site. She had proof of
this because when she clicked the link to email the President of
[the Main Group], her email program opened up and automatically addressed a
message.
