I just want to say "thank you" to all of the new members and particularly those who choose to directly participate through posting. It's gratifying to see lots of new people, information, and ideas being distributed and discussed. This is not my forum, nor do I have anything to do with the people who own and operate this site, but I was the first member of the FedEx Forums, and for a long time it was the same people going back and forth. That has changed...big time, and that's a good thing, because spreading the truth about FedEx is a crucial means of keeping people informed and helping them to protect themselves from the predators who run this dishonest, cheap, and immoral organization. Fred Smith is nothing but a jackal, and so are his chiefs. If you do participate here, be smart about it. Don't be so specific about your issue(s) so that you can be easily identified. Don't name co-workers or managers, and never say who you are. There have been plenty of people on here where Columbo wasn't required to figure out who they were or what station they worked at. Keep it up, spread the word, and don't be afraid of sharing information....just do it wisely. Fred Smith hates this site, because it's an antidote to the Kool-Aid, which fewer and fewer people are consuming these days. Eventually, there will be a "Deep Throat" or leaked memo that brings the whole house of cards down in a few areas like injury policy, targeting older workers etc. The media has expressed interest, but they are generally afraid to go after FedEx because of advertising and Smith's connections. I was contacted pre-Peak by a reporter from one of the Bay Area TV stations, but he only wanted to focus on a very narrow portion of FedEx (FedEx SmartPost), not the overall abuse and games. It's pretty much been the same when I've attempted to reach out to shows like "60 Minutes". They won't take-on the overall company and the way it does business. Anyway, thanks for being here.
