(Nov7, 1996)
M: I wonder if you have a Munich German Edition of the Big Book here (at AAWS, Inc.)?
J: Yes we have. Why?
M: Can I have it for a moment?
G: (suspicious) What for?
M: I wanted to show you that in this book at the very places we just now discussed the words "directly" and "moral" are missing. There are other mistakes and wrongs as well -- although it was proof-read and confirmed by AAWS,  copyrighted and "conference-approved." The integrity of the AA message is already destroyed. And the aim of Big Book Study Group [BBSG] in Germany is to restore it.
G: (dumbstruck, but recovering after a while ...) We of AAWS have no influence on that. You have to work this out within your German service structure! Don't tell me anything but get in contact with them.
M: Several AA friends tried to do so for years and years. They still write letters to many service entities, and make requests to the GSC and so on. First of all those things are ignored. If not entirely ignored they are submitted to the editorial committee and afterwards ignored there. Anyhow, corrections were neither promised nor done until today. I can refer to all of this in detail and produce documents of evidence if you or AAWS wants to listen.
G: I will not engage in any controversy. I have no opinion on that issue.

This, however, changed. Same George Dorsey dropped his mask an revealed his and his incorporation's real face by endorsing attorneys to bring criminal charge and civil lawsuits against AA group members and non-alcoholics. See power of attoreney signed by "George Dorsey" and his successor "Greg Muth".
