A retrogression is a possibility.

If you are really serious, check with you chapter leader. He needs your help regarding certain bills.

Just a suggestion - we (IV members) could start contacting our friends / acquaintances and get them to sign up for IV and post their data or at the least we should get their info and add it to the database.

The USCIS / DOS are not transparent enough, but we can forget them and get our own information. I'm pretty sure that such a campaign has been run in the past, maybe we could do it again.

Thanks for the information. If possible, could you elaborate on what transpired in the discussion? Did the USCIS give out any numbers regarding how many applications were pending in this category before and after June 04?

I don't think it was anything in particular . Some members of IV are in regular touch with the officials. By the way , it is DOS and not USCIS, my bad.

The reasons I expressed my unhappiness was the following
You talk about the actions. I have very strong history of such actions. Can the same thing be said about you?. So coming from some one who just talk the talk and cannot walk the walk is not acceptable.
Your chapter leaders are try to execute a very important plan. Do you even know what it is?

So when you start walking the talk then raise finger on me.

And oh! by the way, I did send you the name of the DOS official and our IV liasion in the comment that I left for you.

Your response is absolutely unprofessional to say the least. I'd not want to stoop to such a low level to refute what you said word for word. You, being the most action-oriented IV person (going by what you said), do not have the etiquette nor the niceties of dealing with a reply that has gone against your grain!

Good show! And how!

First I don't think it was unprofessional.
Second, tell me your level and I will try to match that
Third, you don't smell or talk like a winner.
Fourth, you are the one who gave me the red first. Now don't deny it because I can see it!

Is there anybody else from IV who can throw light on this and lend credibility to what Mr. singhsa3 is stating?

Why can't this information be reported professionally with the complete transcript of what DOS said?

Why are there so many cover and blinds and smokes and mirrors over a simple thing like this?

Of course, and that is a professional and constructive way of asking. Thanks

Please contact Vamsi Poondla , your state chapter lead. There was a IV call that happened yesterday.

Agree with you. However, senior member like Singh ought to be professional in his response, accepting constructive criticism for better communication. He should not measure other members' corn by his own bushel. On the contrary, his response smacks of childish and amateurish behaviour. You're absolutely right that we need to exude positive energy. That's exactly what I said in my response to Singh since his message (since edited) was blunt and ushering in negative vibes.
BTW, my reputation has gone down to RED (from 3 green dots to 2 green dots to 1 red in a span of 6 hours). Why? Because my response is not appreciated. So much for candid discussion and appreciation of constructive criticism. Senior members who tout 'achievements' and 'firsts' to their credit ought to play a major role in bringing many new members into their fold and sustaining their motivation.
