I couldn't agree more John. The only rational I have heard for this
scheme is that "it works". I don't believe that this is a valid
justification nor that it is working all that well.

I would be the last person to suggest that fundraising is an easy
job but I wonder how many people have been turned off of donating
to AMSAT because of the elitist tone ? ...or how many have had their
(unjustified) suspicions that AMSAT is an elitist organization
confirmed by it ?

Jut my $0.02 worth.
