No one bothered to respond to my e-mail which pointed out quite
explicitly the problem I see with Ceata and accepting donations.[1]
Anyone can see it was nearly impossible to use the money Ceata had. It
was going to come to a head sooner or later, and I glad it did now
rather than later.

I am unsure who exactly you are referring to as having "selfish brat
