After being a member for 6 years, 6 months, 20 days and contributing over 22, 000 memorials, over 67, 000 photos and fulfilling over 7500 photo request. I was targeted by a jealous member that had a friend that is a administrator. I sent the below email to Jim Tipton requesting a refund for the 10 memorials I sponsored. I have NEVER recieved a refund and all of my years of hard work remain on the site for Jim Tipton to profit from. DO NOT CONTRIBUTE TO THIS WEBSITE THEIR ADMINISTRATORS EVIL & HEARTLESS!

a Formal Request for a refund of my sponsorships, also delete all of MY photos and memorials. It is wrong to suspend a members account but leave their copyrighted photos, memorials and sponsorships. You are profit-ting from years of gas, time, efforts and photos we have added over the past 6 years and 6 months and 20 days. It is curious that the administrator that suspended our account is the ONLY administrator in the past 2 years to beat us down in favor of her friends, like merging memorials in favor of her friends when they were not duplicates. She also ignored forwarded SAC's from one of her friends that used my mother in laws memorials to threaten and attack us, this same member has threatened us for two years but that is okay because he has a friend that is a administrator. I have saved all the SAC's and emails in regards to all the attacks and threats by this administrators friend. Note that for four years we never had any complaints but the only complaints for the last to years come from only one administrator..
Remember that many memorials are only sponsored after a volunteer has added a photo, but when the contributor of the memorials wants the volunteer photo removed is just a waste of time and gas. You need to change the volunteer photo program to make it for only the person that maintains the memorial can request volunteer photos since they can complain and have the photos removed...how would you feel if you spent an hour and half in the heat searching for a grave only to be beat down by an administrator for not removing the volunteer, because the member that maintains the memorials wants it removed though it was a volunteer photo request, this is a MAJOR flaw in your program not to mention favoritism of certain members who have friends that are administrators.
Please refund my sponsorships and delete all my contributions to find a grave, that includes memorials and copyrighted photos.
