RSS icon Comments on Foolproof: Dead and Gone


I am a ticket holder to two $75 events. After a discussion with Town Hall, I was sent a letter from Ms. Harmon to take a tax deduction but I would rather have my $150.00.

Foolproof was a great idea and was implemented well until their difficulties. I wish we could raise the funds and bring back a 2.0 version.

I think Foolproof really did a disservice to their supporters by keeping all this so hush-hush. I suspect ass-covering was more important than 'dignity'. Glad I raised the question yesterday about 'whatever happened to Foolproof'. Now we know. Thanks, Brendan. You seem to have more confidence in the community than the Foolproof board did.

Are you kidding? Would YOU send a press release if the IRS was after you?

I'm an officer and boardmember of a non-profit and, if we were to be disbanding, we would certainly proactively explain why to the public and, in particular, to our members. And, from the looks of it, Foolproof's issues with the IRS wound up being fairly minor. The other issues appear to have had the fatal impact. I think it's a good cautionary tale for any other group who looks to fill the hole left by Foolproof's demise.

That's too bad. I enjoyed their speakers.
