Wow. Some of the comments here, are just, well, naive.Talking to the GM about what you don't like makes sense, if you do it privately. If it goes well, continue. If it does not, stop. If it does not go well privately, it will not do so in the future and definitely will not do so in open conversations.At that point you have the option of quiting or trying to replace the GM. If you want the latter, you need to talk about other officiers. Personally I would not follow the advice in the column. I would just sound out a few officiers about a few GM actions I didn't like. See what they think. If they are inclined to dismiss your concerns, then you are back to /gquit. If they support your points, check out a few more. Then talk to whomever you think would be the new GM and see if they would consider it.Point I am making, big open discussions are never going to work. Even good people don't like them and jerks are going to take it personally no matter what you say.Second point, you need to get other's points of view in private. If no one agrees with you, save a lot of time and trouble and give it up. If they do, push forward.
