There's little doubt that the engagements with politicians, government departments and footballing bodies are a learning curve, and often a steep one at that, for the committed and dedicated team of volunteers at Hammers United.
Some amongst their ranks are willing and do stand up to be counted amongst us, just as others who publicly pontificate and pay lip service to ours and others faces, from the also rans and political hopefuls to real established heavyweights on those circuits, have absolutely no real intention of lifting a finger to help change the status quo.
Dialogue with all parties, political and otherwise, remains on-going, and we shall continue in our attempts to be as transparent as possible in our communications.
Rest assured, we will of course exercise our right of reply, and continue to explore all available avenues until they are exhausted.
Our aim remains to establish an independent voice for West Ham United fans, one that is not bound by the constraints of an undemocratic construct.
To that end, any experience that those who read or are commenting on this thread may have, that could accelerate in achieving that aim, would be warmly welcomed with open arms by those of us who have already decided that the time has come to unite and take a stand against the clubs position.
To quote one of our more famous fans (who we have also reached out too) "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek".
Positions on our committee and our sub-committees remain open. Membership remains free.
From a personal perspective, I simply asked myself if I was happy with my West Ham experience, and after answering honestly, decided I wanted to do something about it.
I now have what I see as a great privilege to serve my fellow Hammers - I'd be honoured to have any of you serve by my side.
