I found this article in http://scamieee.netfirms.com
and I think that it would be useful.
SCAM IEEEThis is a new site uploaded by a team of
university researchers and professorsthat have serious complaints against IEEE
and many arguments against its legal status. So, we have created this forum to fight the making-profit policy of
IEEE. We declare that we will stop all of our efforts, if IEEE cease to be a profit-making company and if the IEEE President Michael Adler stop to be an unethical person. We want an IEEE real non-for-profit academic organization.
However, currently IEEE is really a scam.
We want to correct this "SCAM IEEE" and we want to improve the recent
bad reputation of this big organization
We invite you to send us your opinion of how to proceed.
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will reply you shortly
This web page is a FORUM for the IEEE reputation or better for the IEEE SCAM.
We cannot accept the way that we are treated in IEEE Conferences. Rude Presidents,
Unpolite Ph.D. students that help their Supervisor - Chairman of the Conference.
This is ridiculus. We must improve this situation and for this reason we want your opinion.
We will host all the views here. Please, email us email@example.com

Hello, Michael Adler. If each IEEE Conference gathers more than 1200 registrations, with an average of 600 $, we have 720000 $.
In what pocket all this money goes
Other Societies like SIAM, ACM etc... does not have this behaviour.
We try to have a discount in your conference, but we failed.
“This has created just tremendous bad will toward the IEEE,” said Kenneth Foster,
a University of Pennsylvania professor of bioengineering and an IEEE fellow
The petition's administrator, professor Michael Gevers of Universite
Catholique du Louvain in Belgium, said that the one fifth of the petition's
backers who attached a note sent “extremely angry comments… Many of them say,
'If that continues, I will not renew my membership,'” he told The Scientist.
About 1000 of the signatories are from the United States, Gevers said.
"Only if you put in your paper the name of a well-known Professor in USA, member of IEEE, you can have a full paper in IEEE" professors use to say. "This is because IEEE is an AMERICAN Company. We must make it clear." If you doubt, you can see the following interesting links: http://onlineethics.org/essays/discharge/unghot.html#assault
