I think you were out of line in this. I also think it is just plain wrong to comment on anyone making a charitable gift by saying it was not enough. Could PADI have done more? Sure, and so could have NAUI, along with you and me. But fortunately, my contribution did not get me bashed for not doing more and it did not garner a snipe that I do not care about the chamber. Yet PADI did get that for their efforts.
If my lowly contributions had generated such a snipe, I would think long and hard about participating in the future. As a diver who hopes to never visit the chamber for treatment, I celebrate each and every gift made to the chamber -- whether it be in cash, in kind, or in time. Those who stepped up to the plate, and put something into that plate, are the heros of the story.
