    Just saw that Leisurepro has linked Chris’s GFM account on their FB page.

    The word is cynical. It is an unfortunate condition but treatable. I don’t think I will be moderated for saying so.

    Our, not Chris's, I just set it up. It's the dive communities efforts and donations.

    I'm a member of at least one FB group whose Admin deleted the fundraiser and posted an explanation as to why, and it makes complete sense. This particular FB page serves a valuable and important function of analyzing Scuba Diving Accidents so divers are better prepared and less likely to repeat the mistakes of others. To open that page up to fund raisers would completely derail it from it's purpose and those valuable informative threads would probably get buried underneath boatloads of fundraising posts, many of which are questionable, some of which are outright scams.

    People need to separate their emotions from common sense when it comes to things like this.

    Does anyone stay in contact with the surviving crew members? Know how they are?
