I understand your skepticism, I do not post often, but I can assure you I have been reading the message board for a long time. I did sign the petition you posted a few weeks back and this is a copy of my history with Terrestar in September 2011.

I did have my shares cancelled or erased from my account and I was only looking for a few answers. Again, It was not a lot of money, but every little bit counts.
Every year, the satellite-TV operator has filed its proxy in late March and held its shareholder meeting in early May. Every year, that is, until this one. May is mostly over, and Dish hasn’t filed its proxy or set a date for its annual meeting.
Dish says schedule conflicts have kept it from setting a meeting date. That rings a bit hollow, given the company’s past regularity. Another possible explanation: Dish could be working on some announcement that would require a shareholder vote, and so may be delaying to present the issue at the meeting.
Granted, shareholder opinions don’t matter much at Dish, which is controlled by Chairman Charlie Ergen. But the meeting is one of the few places to hear him discuss his vision for the company. And the silence has raised a few eyebrows among analysts and investors. Meantime, Dish filed an amended version of its annual financial filing on April 29 as required if a proxy hasn’t been filed within 120 days of the end of the fiscal year.
Proxies may typically be run of the mill. Dish’s delay suggests this year’s could be quite the page turner
