Tippy - It's All About Money

Tippy posted an undated and snipped email exchange with Kimmer on her blog. Surely, this is in reference to Kimmer telling Tippy that she will no longer be paid. (Or perhaps this was when the pay cut was made, as according to Tippy she first had a pay cut before being taken off the payroll entirely.)

It shows that money was the issue for Tippy, not any concerns about supporting a proven fraud. She had no problems promoting a fraud as long as she was paid for doing so. When the future of Kimkins became uncertain (i.e. a paycheck was no longer guaranteed) Tippy was no longer willing to put in the effort. Her "vow to the lowcarb" community meant nothing.

Kimmer to Tippy:

"Jeannie, I hope that you will understand that this is the best I can do at this time with an uncertain future for Kimkins."

Tippy responded:

"As far as PR, my thoughts are IF Kimkins is uncertain about a future it would be wrong to promote Kimkins to new people, as a lifetime membership may not mean much. So I feel promoting may not be best for time being. Now don't get me wrong. I don't want it this way. So, if and when we can get passed this and KNOW we are a secure site once again I will gladly do PR. Very gladly! For now admin is fine. This is the first time I have ever even considered the possibility of Kimkins not surviving. And I still hope it will not happen that way. But Kimkins has no need for a PR at present time, obviously. No need to make any announcements. It's not a big deal."

"as a lifetime membership may not mean much"
It didn't mean much to all the existing members that were banned for no reason at all. Like many others, I never posted on Kimkins so Tippy can not claim any "hateful" posts. I never received any explanation to why I was banned, and did not receive any refund. How come that didn't bother Tippy? Oh, I forgot, she was the one that banned me.

"No need to make any announcements. It's not a big deal."
Kimmer never made any announcement when Tippy was appointed, so why would she make one when she resigned? And, staying on supporting Kimkins as an admin? Tippy is right, it's not a big deal.

Thanks, Mariasol, for your post on the e-mail exchange between Kimmer & Tippy. I couldn't figure out what the hell Tippy was talking about (not enough coffee).

I linked to your post on my blog.

Now, I'm off to make more coffee :^)
