Geez Martha, I cant even tell what you took out of my post...which is STILL nicer than the first one I came up with.

Do we get to re-re-re quote some of "the kings" posts where he derides people who said they were leaving and then came back? I was figuring Nords to be good for that almost any minute now.

How about this: after months of effort and several lapses, I've decided that it's best to ignore it in the hope that it'll stop feeding off the attention and just go away.

Or else it'll get more & more frustrated and wrap more rope around its neck until we feel it's necessary to ban it.

I don't know. He can be mean. I try to avoid mean people. Maybe that makes me an introvert.

What a great question.

I used to like him because even though everybody knew he was full of crap, rarely told the truth about anything, and contributed no practical or usable advice he was sort of a fixture...you knew what you were going to get and you usually werent disappointed.

Heck, when people picked on him (sometimes newbies overwhelmed by the odor of BS, sometimes old timers just getting tired of the same old BS), I often PM'ed them and asked them to chill out. Johns just being john...harmless old fart with no money and no self esteem thats trying to pump himself up in a virtual world and pass the time away.

Later, I just couldnt stomach the 8 irrelevant serial posts in a row in nearly every single thread that made it a pain in the butt to read the board, just to jack up his post count, and I got tired of the unmoderated personal attacks on myself and other posters.

I personally find it rather difficult to understand how anyone with a grasp of who the guy actually is and how he operates would think much of him or consider him 'legendary' in any way.

But maybe its because I know who he is, where he lives, what he looks like, what his ex wife has to say about him, and what sort of person he really is.

SUCH internet drama...

In fact, heres a satellite picture of his house! (I love doing this... )

Being sort of a Newbie myself and not really interested in increasing my post count, all I can say is OUCH! That being said I guess I just don't know the whole story, or maybe just the 3 sides of the story.
