I took a look at the Sumption & Wyland Web site and the firm claims that
they "help organizations and their leaders change, grow and succeed."

So, the fact that an email that purports to be from Michael Wyland himself
was sent to this list that seems aimed at intimidating an active email
discussion list full of people who love to help organizations succeed by
providing accurate, timely and easy-to-understand information says
something (not so good) about this leader-of-leaders' understanding of his
stated mission.

Michael, please sue me too for defamation and see where that attempt to
squelch free speech on the Internet gets you. Make my day!
