I am an the accountant who directed other accountants to view and comment on this forum. It was based on the initial disparaging comments towards accountants. If you wish to make unkind comments toward members of SAN, (by the way no Accountant in SAN has been sanctioned or lost their licence, ASIC is merely concerned that SAN has too many members). If ASIC was really concerned then it would start banning those accountants or Ban SAN. I personally think the government wants everyone in a union controlled fund or a retail fund. They cant have future access to funds managed in an SMSF. It has definitely got out of hand here, no doubt. Although members in one industry cannot make nasty comments and not expect a reply. That being said it has definitely become toxic. That was not my intention. There are well qualified as well as well experienced professionals in both areas.
