Old-timers who remember SFF-Net may remember Robert W. Glaub, who was a regular poster there and later on Making Light. He was also a long-time worker for the Federal government, which has — in accordance with unhallowed tradition — repaid him in his recent retirement by shafting him big-time. The following message is reposted from his Facebook group at his request:
I need help. The government says they overpaid me and emptied out my bank account. I have no money for food or insulin. Plus since I declared bankruptcy my credit union will close down my account on Friday. So if you can send me what you can to my PayPal account by Thursday, that would be a big help. firstname.lastname@example.org.
