Independent Rebuttal Against Shawn Boyle and Followers sign now

Dear Shawn Boyle and Followers,

Firstly, I have no affiliation with Grateful Dead, GDM, dead.net, or any other hard working contributor for the cause of Grateful Dead. In fact, those who do have such an affiliation have never met me and in no way encouraged or influenced my decision making except through their hard work and enlightened values. Secondly, if you are unaware of the catalyst for the following petition it is in regards to the subject matter found at the following link - http://www.petitiononline.com/gdm/petition.html.

Having said that, I am absolutely appalled! Appalled at the decisions you, Shawn Boyle and followers, have made and cant believe that the feelings and beliefs you now harbor and entertain came from the series of events you illustrate. The amount of generosity that was displayed by the band and whomever else contributed the music at archive.org (and still do) should be enough alone to repel and extinguish such hostile feelings.

I ask all of you How generous and giving are you in every day of your life? Would you freely give away, with thanksgiving in your heart, the very sustenance which provides the livelihood for both you and those you love? Do you always try to perform and hold yourselves accountable for the very actions that you expect others to exhibit?

I will judge each and every one of you right now and suggest that YOU DO NOT! You base your selfishness on money spent and what you believe to be hard earned time spent that is worthy of retribution. I can say boldly as a lover of Grateful Dead music and shows that this was never a JOB for me that required reprisal! I gladly handed my money over for each and every experience. The experience was the retribution; it was the reason for my contribution without expectations of grander.

This petition is not in effort to gain wide support; instead it is to vocally denounce you and your feelings as a fellow Grateful Dead contributor. It saddens me to know that you, Shawn Boyle and followers, could have once stood next to me at a life changing Grateful Dead show or in line at a head shop. To know that such individuals could consider and eventually express such gluttonous and inconsiderate views makes me question the sincerity of many brothers and sisters in the community. But Ill be damned if you will ever convince me of your selfish values!

I suspect that you Shawn Boyle and followers, never really understood what this was all about. You simply enjoyed only the temporary satisfaction of the show or music and could never maintain a prolonged enjoyment unless continuously revisiting that temporary satisfaction. This is the definition of an addict, an addict of temporary satisfaction who becomes irate and hostile when the fix is taken away. Perhaps, one day you individuals will be able appreciate the reality of eternity and realize that the music has not been taken away because it cannot be taken away. We have been exposed to it, whether it is through a show or mp3, it can now never be taken away from us. Once you individuals can appreciate such an ideology, I look forward to the day we can all sit around a fire with some good music and smiles.
