Cute, for a moment

mr_peabody, after my back injury, and all of the issues with L&I, there is no such thing as a bumpy ride anymore! I can do anything!


I'm sure that many of you know that is my wife's name. Now, back a few years ago, when no one knew who I was, I mentioned that she was having to deal with a back injury issue and the frick and frack doctors that do the "independent medical exams". You know who has cataloged the info and I think I've mentioned Joan's name on ThurstonBlog.

It's not that big of a deal, except for the point that no one has the right to discuss our personal lives except us, especially in the media. I wouldn't even complain except it's great data to support the need for The Olympian to either get their blog software upgraded, or shut the thread down.

So....the following email went to Lui Long and George Le Masurier (I now cc him on everything):

"You folks ever gonna get control of this thread? It seems that after my last complaint you had enough time to look over my blog for “violations” of your policy. Maybe that time could have been spent on eliminating people that violate personal privacy of other readers and commenters."

I'm certain the Publisher enjoys seeing this sort of garbage happening in the newspaper he is responsible for. I think the next email will go to the Regional Vice President in Sacramento, also.

Yeah......a real comedian.

Suck on this Righties

Our President recently took the Republican house to the woodshed. I'm not hearing a lot of spin from his CSPAN beat down of the Bohner et. al. My fav was President Obama's spanking of some moron from Texas whining that Obama was spending us to the poor house.

[W]e came in already with a $1.3 trillion deficit before I had passed any law. What is true is we came in with $8 trillion worth of debt over the next decade -- had nothing to do with anything that we had done. It had to do with the fact that in 2000 when there was a budget surplus of $200 billion, you had a Republican administration and a Republican Congress, and we had two tax cuts that weren't paid for.

You had a prescription drug plan -- the biggest entitlement plan, by the way, in several decades -- that was passed without it being paid for. You had two wars that were done through supplementals. And then you had $3 trillion projected because of the lost revenue of this recession. That's $8 trillion.

Now, we increased it by a trillion dollars because of the spending that we had to make on the stimulus. I am happy to have any independent fact-checker out there take a look at your presentation versus mine in terms of the accuracy of what I just said.

Suck on that IV.

M_W tries to take over from the Felcher

Good Luck!

From a Craigslist ad:

"There where lots of young men and women, many from T.E.S.C. or at least they looked and smelled the part."

This fool left his drum kit set up at The Eagles Club, where they rent to all sorts of groups and someone lifted his cymbals. Brilliant, Einstein! He identifies himself as the "drummer for the Eagles house band" and posted his phone number (as if a thief would call him).

This clown and his band of merry men have been advertising for a keyboardist, off and on for quite some time. When I talked to them and found out they were "The Eagles house band" (read - "we play for free"), I said I was too busy with my other bookings (I play with people other than my own gigs).

One of my best decisions in life.

ALCOA, Tenn. – The son of a well-known Alcoa pastor has taken out an order of protection against his father, claiming he was threatened with a gun during an argument at a church over his lack of church attendance. The order of protection was filed by 32-year-old Michael Louis Colquitt against 60-year-old Joe Colquitt, pastor of St. John Missionary Baptist Church.

From Sondrak.com - NOTHING concerning Pam Roach's dismissal from caucus.

LOTS of photoshopped pictures and a copy of a receipt from a liquor store, attributed to Nancy Pelosi, but, amazingly, the location of the store was edited from the receipt, which means it could have been a receipt to the Award Celebration Party that Sondra held for herself.

State Senate Republicans have kicked Sen. Pam Roach out of caucus meetings

Bet she didn't think she would ever reach their breaking point! LOL

http://blog.thenewstribune.com/politics/2010/01/29/roach-expelled-from-gop-caucus-meetings/

Roach expelled from GOP caucus meetings

Citing “hostile behavior,” state Senate Republicans have kicked GOP Sen. Pam Roach out of their private meetings.

Roach, an Auburn resident who represents the 31st District, no longer will get a voice or a vote in her caucus, where lawmakers huddle by party affiliation behind closed doors.

“As your fellow Senators it is difficult to be in a room with you when you erupt in anger,” Senate GOP caucus leaders said in a letter to Roach obtained by the News Tribune. “For our employees it is unacceptable.”

The rare step stems from an April 15, 2009, confrontation between Roach and a Senate staff lawyer who handles personnel and ethics matters, Michael Hoover, but reflects years of conflict between Roach and other Senate Republicans.

Roach reached back to those past incidents in an interview today to argue GOP leaders are persecuting her. She said she has filed requests for reconsideration of the caucus ejection and a reprimand of her by a bipartisan Senate committee that Republicans cited in their decision. But she doesn’t mind being left out of caucus, Roach said.

“It’s not anything I’m missing at all,” she said, “and it’s kind of freedom-evoking.”

The reprimand is the fifth disciplinary action by the Senate against Roach for her treatment of staff, according to the documents associated with the investigations and obtained by the News Tribune. ...

She has now chose to align herself with several bad actors. What should this be called, the Rinoization of Sarah Palin.
At the time of the election, perhaps Sarah Palin could have been forgiven for her ideas on immigration (and lack of knowledge) because she was governor of Alaska, not Arizona. But in the intervening months, she has done little but promote herself as a celebrity, known because her brief time on the national stage..

Now what Kathy's LTE said was...."The mayor of Buckley informed us that if they close Rainier School, 1,000 jobs will be lost, 400 homes, and $2 million in revenue." This is probably quite true as I'm sure the City of Buckley knows their revenue base.

Just one slight problem Bioya....

Sounds like he's getting help identifying.....

Sexual obsessions may involve intrusive thoughts or images of "kissing, touching, fondling, oral sex, anal sex, intercourse, and rape" with "strangers, acquaintances, parents, children, family members, friends, coworkers, animals and religious figures", and can include "heterosexual or homosexual content" with persons of any age.[10] As with other intrusive, unpleasant thoughts or images, most people have some disquieting sexual thoughts at times, but people with OCD may attach extraordinary significance to the thoughts. For example, obsessive fears about sexual orientation can appear to the sufferer, and even to those around them, as a crisis of sexual identity.[11][12] The doubt that accompanies OCD leads to uncertainty regarding whether one might act on the troubling thoughts, resulting in self-criticism or self-loathing.[10]

IndependentVoter wrote on 01/26/2010 06:26:16 PM:

Check out those crickets!!!!

If you look at the table of contents, you'll see that our number of posts for January 2010 has exceeded the number of posts for 2009 (October, November, December, I think)

The crickets are chirping like mad!!! Keep it up.

This is your community blog. I'd really love to see more input from writers and we can even take up topics other than The Olympian LTEs (although the humor is just too priceless to pass up).

Thanks to all that are participating and thanks to those reading that aren't posting. Everyone counts on ThurstonBlog.

FYI - I started this blog in 2007 and lost interest. I gained interest again for two reasons - (1) The Olympian started shutting down their forum for abuse, so I wanted us to have a place to go and (2) SondraK took delight in shoving it in my face that there was no traffic on ThurstonBlog.

Since SondraK.com has been operating since 2005 (or before) and has joined networks of Conservative blogs that promote each other for the sake of mutual mental masturbation, I would expect her traffic to be much more than it is. Just for fun, take a look at her list of contributors and you'll notice a half dozen regulars and then a random list of commenters. I'm pretty proud of what we've done on our own with no promotion, other than local word of mouth.

I have no desire to promote ThurstonBlog outside the immediate market. That was the original thought when I started playing with this in 2007. I'm not worried about "winning awards" or "hit counts", as I'm not selling advertising. What I do care about is a blogging community that is fun, and at times provocative and educational.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

Clear As Mud, Your Honor

Today's Supreme Court ruling recognizing corporations the right to spend unlimited funds on political campaigns.

From the Washington Post - Remember Roberts saying judges were like umpires calling the balls and strikes? In this case, he and his colleagues canceled the game altogether and decided on their own what the final score would be.

“I do think that it is a jolt to the legal system when you overrule a precedent,” Roberts said back then. “Precedent plays an important role in promoting stability and evenhandedness. It is not enough -- and the court has emphasized this on several occasions -- it is not enough that you may think the prior decision was wrongly decided. That really doesn’t answer the question, it just poses the question.”
He added: “And you do look at these other factors, like settled expectations, like the legitimacy of the court, like whether a particular precedent is workable or not, whether a precedent has been eroded by subsequent developments.” He also quoted Alexander Hamilton, who wrote in Federalist 78: “To avoid an arbitrary discretion in the judges, they need to be bound down by rules and precedents.”


Thanks a pantload, Justice Roberts! Do you think you could have bought us dinner before trying to screw us?

I suppose that Larry's latest sock puppet was some sort of brilliant ruse, just like his last one was "parody". I would further guess that because Larry managed to pretend to be a HALFWAY civil person for a few days.


As "xxxxxxxxxx" I changed nothing in my politics and I just changed my style of writing. There is a preception that "Larry" is the bad guy and then there are the "liberals". "xxxxxxxxxx" was a well spoken, well researched liberal that also had the ability to recognize when a Democrat screwed the pooch on a political campaign.

You see, there lies over half the issue. "xxxxxxxxxx" catigated Coakley for a poor run campaign and the Right Wing Lunatics buy into that as "being a nice guy". No, as "xxxxxxxxxx" himself put it, it was being "intellectually honest" - something that the Right Wing Lunatics cannot do to save their souls.

"Red Foreman" goes out of his way to engage in an argument with me. The classic was the "no parking places behind the Eagle's Club Building" I'm still trying to figure out how I got a 2004 Expedition to fit in that dumpster. I really had to laugh when "Red", in conversation with the newcomer "Frank", couldn't explain why it was so important to him and his cohorts about "Larry" and "how many times he posts", etc. Check out these two comments from Saturday:

Well, since we all know that Larry cannot live without being on here all day every day we can assume that he is here under a different name or that something (good or bad) has happened in his life to keep him away.

Comment on: Letters to the Editor for Jan. 16 at 1/16/2010 1:04 PM PST on The Olympian Well Frank, It would take me awhile to explain that, and I'm not really here to talk about Larry.

Red wasn't there to talk about "Larry" who hadn't posted in days. LMAO.....uh huh, Red. Frank's question was just a little too real for Red and the Klowns:

Now that I've outted myself, they're all back to the whining that LarryTheBadGuy is their problem. Thanks, folks. It was a ball exposing your methods. Bottom line - not one of you can support your outrageous claims and catcalls. You have no game other than to whine. I've just demonstrated that rational, civil discussion always wins.


As the old song by Jessie Winchester goes - "I'm the same old guy that I used to be, I haven't changed at all. Same old walk, same old talk that would run you up the wall" See you on the blog, Achmed! I know you can't miss what we say.


10Xman, aka your administrator Larry, has demontrated and proved what we've all known for a long time, The Olympian FTE Conservatives are whiners with no substance that always shoot for a personal issue. I set the snare....I baited the trap...and TODAY...I reeled in the big ones.

Achmed will never get over the embarrassment of saying I was a pretty nice guy....LOL

Here is the funny part. I didn't change my politics one ounce. I changed my delivery a bit and purposefully posted less (see if you are a liberal, you post too much) and no one lost their undies over 10xman. BUT......allow them to know that I am 10xman and the caterwauling went wild!

Nothing like a little science project to keep the mind occupied. Thanks, Conservatives. I needed the guinea pigs.
LATE BREAKING NEWS
I guess it's only OK to attack me in The Olympian and for me not to respond. The above posted comment was pulled.
This is probably a good time to share that I sent an email George Le Masuer, Publisher of The Olympian, after the "vader boy" incident. Lui Long seem a little tense in his return email, since I cc'd him. 10x was created to prove a point - that Larry Hill is being singled out for attack by a person or group of people.
I am responsible for the content of this blog, as The Olympian is responsible for theirs. This crap of "we don't have enough labor hours to moderate 24/7" is not my problem. It's their's. I told the Publisher and Long that I was cloaking myself in The Olympian to avoid harassment and attacks, so they have been aware of who I was the entire time.
I don't know exactly where this goes from here, but I've proven my point - it's a personal attack on Larry Hill.

Crickets chirping?

I guess the new sound of crickets chirping is Achmed and the Olympians.

This doesn't surprise me after watching last night. There were lots of interesting story lines about the Massachusetts senate race, and the majority of the Conservatives were more interested in "I told you so" bullshit.

The press is quick to judge on this - "Obama". No one really wants to discuss what a piss poor race Coakley ran, as it might take away from the drunken power that is one senate seat.

I see today, Obama and the Democrats have decided to slow the pace. Probably good. Find out what the people REALLY don't like and then set up a game plan. Let's face it, the GOP will do nothing other than obstruct and to deny that would be silly. Put a health care insurance reform act together that serves REALLY what the PEOPLE want, and then dig in for reconciliation, if needed.

Welcome to government, democracy style.

Where did it go today?

Why was the LTE comment thread pulled today? I'm gone for a few days, the 20th doesn't appear on the drop-down menu, and it is pulled before 1pm. What happened this time?!

I wish that the talents of the general public,plus our passion for our trails would lead the legislators and the Governor to put the trust in us as they ask us to put our trust in them. Several citizens in this Forum alone have stepped up and asked 'What can I do??" Also I have taken my time to go to the Capitol and ask "What can I do?". I was met with hand shaking and nice smiles, but no game plan.TO break the stalemate, someone will have to think out of the box and care. Someone will have to want a solution enough for closure NOT TO BE AN OPTION> I would hope it would be the Governor, because I, for one, am a citizen who would care enough to help!

Brown Wins Massachusetts Senate Seat

From all appearances, it looks like Brown has won Ted Kennedy's former Senate seat. Talk is already coming out of the DNC about poor campaining on the part of the Democratic candidate and a few other issues.

There is no sense in crying over spilled milk, so let's talk about what happens from here. The Olympian LTEs are full of childish rhetoric and taunts of celebration. I'm interested in what people really think this says and what happens next.

Violence and Rape?

"Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) lashed out at Scott Brown's Massachusetts senatorial campaign on Monday for adopting "intimidation tactics" that he deemed "reminiscent of the dangerous atmosphere of Sarah Palin's 2008 campaign rallies."
In a post to his own site,
Kerry insisted that reports of out-of-state tea party protesters showing up at Brown rallies, the vandalizing of Martha Coakley signs, and the threats of violence and rape directed at Coakley herself were "not how we do business in Massachusetts."

Have any/all of you read this article in Sunday's Olympian? If not, I recommend it.

http://www.theolympian.com/business/wire/story/1104883.html

Can newspaper muckraking carry on in nonprofits?


One of the new-style journalistic endeavors mentioned in the above article is InvestigateWest (http://invw.org/about/), headquartered in Seattle. If you want to support this 501(c)3 non-profit organization, go to its membership page: http://invw.org/membership/ "... All members will receive our quarterly updates, an invitation to participate in a monthly conference call with InvestigateWest journalists, and inclusion in a password-protected members discussion forum to on [sic] important topics at the top of today’s news agenda. ..." I would call that putting our money where our mouths are.

Glenn Beck Fraud

Beck uses Vicks under eyes for the faux tears

Probably no big stick, so talk loudly

From the Boston Globe:

Surging GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown yesterday warned President Obama to “stay away” from the Bay State during his roiling race against Democratic rival Martha Coakley and not to interfere with their intensifying battle in the campaign’s final days.
“He should stay away and let Martha and I discuss the issues one on one,” Brown said. “The machine is coming out of the woodwork to get her elected. They’re bringing in outsiders, and we don’t need them.”

Wiki - In June 1982, Brown, then a 22-year-old law student at Boston College, posed for a nearly nude centerfold pictorial in Cosmopolitan, with his hand covering his genitals. He won the magazine's "America’s Sexiest Man" contest. When it interviewed him, he referred to himself as "a patriot" and stated that he had political ambitions.[35][11] Brown has also worked as an actor in his early career,[11] appearing in a variety of television commercials.


I'm sure Obama is really worried about Brown's warning....

Global Warming 101

http://www.appinsys.com/GlobalWarming/CascadesSnowpack.htm

Check this out for charts and stats on the Cascade Snowpack.

I meandered into a 2005 documentary movie on Encore this morning when they were talking about the Cascade Mountain Snowpack, explaining how a low snowpack doesn't allow for the right water flow from the mountains, thus poor irrigation to the east side, thus crop reduction, etc, etc, etc. I'll try to find the name of the movie so that others can cop a view.

They filmed a crew doing snowpack measurements on the eastern slope of the Cascades and went into areas where, traditionally, at the same time of year and location, the pack would have been several feet (they were transported in a grooming vehicle). They were literally driving over brush and there were scant inches here and there, where the sun hadn't melted the snow.

I was left to remember the numerous trips that I've made over Snoqualmie Pass and the level of the lake at the top of the pass, controlled by the dam. There was once an island in the middle that summer campers could boat to and camp out. I haven't seen a time in at least 10 years when you couldn't drive out there now. Even in the heavy snow years (2009), they still can't fill the lake, that once filled every year. Similarily, Alder Lake, in Pierce County hasn't filled in years. I've made literally hundreds of drives past there in the 1960s with my parents, heading for Packwood. I think the same could be said for Riffe Lake in Lewis County.

It seems that the Conservative side of our state, where fruit orchards are King, understands the problem. Why can't they educate their breathern in the cities?

An earthquake, so he did say that. Nice try though "FranklyFrank".And no Wally's Pal, there is not a big difference. Notice I never defended what Pat Robertson said. But as expected you lefties are jumping to defend an equally stupid comment from an activist on the left. So predictable that I can set my watch by it.

Another quote from the video"the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I’m saying? We have to act now!” So what happened? An earthquake. So not acting in Copenhagen caused the earthquake. Why? Because we failed to do anything about global warming which in Danny Glover's mind causes earthquakes. You can try to spin it any way you like, his words are his words.

I just viewed both sites, the one I provided and the one Achmed provided. The video is identical.Why make something up?Who is this Larry everyone seems to be fixated with?


Now...as anyone can see, if you just take a moment to watch the video, as I did, and others did, Glover's statement is so terribly misquoted, the media should be embarrassed. But in MY research, I found that the only people grasping on this are still saying Obama was born in Kenya.

More importantly.....how did MY NAME enter into this????????

Achmed is so obsessed about making sure that I'm her problem that I've now become everyone, other than me.

Of course....I'm the one that is causing a problem on the comments thread. I already exposed myself briefly, but the moderator pulled the comment because I referenced ThurstonBlog (I guess, in OlympianSpeak, you can reference any site you want except Thurstonblog)

LATE BREAKING NEWS!!!

I went directly to the GRITtv site and watched the clip. Sure enough, Mr Glover was referring to the devastation caused by disasters, natural or anthropogenic. Earthquakes, floods, storms, sea level rise, you name it, the Caribbean nations are vulnerable, especially the really poor ones like Haiti.


Looks like Frankly Frank, me and Reasoned agree.

"this is not going to end well today at all..."Of course not. You-know-who is posting again today. Notice 2 days in the LTE section without him and there is peace. He comes back and mayhem. I hope the Olympian is paying attention to who the real problem is on this board.


Now that Achmed knows (by reading ThurstonBlog) that I have posted under a name other than "LarryTheStableGuy", the PuppetShow begins.

Hey....Achy.....since you know I'm posting.....what's my name, Joe?

By the way Dipshit...I never left....which really destroys the crap out of your theory. I was right there during the "two days"....but...you and the Klowns didn't have a target. Sondra tried, but FAILED.

Frankly Frank's first comment on: 'Tea Party' activists rally at Capitol at 1/15/2010 9:44 PM PST on The Olympian
Someone said there was only 1 rebel flag in a group of 300 and that wasn't representative. I guess 300 in a state of 6,000,000 isn't representative either


Kinda shoots the shit out of Achmed's conspiracy theory that everything was fine on Friday because Frankly Frank - aka me in Achmed's mind - hadn't posted.

Check his birth certificate....

Also you liberals are always bragging about Obama's intelligence. What proof do you have to back up your statements. He was editor of the Harvard Law review. Maybe so! But he is the only editor of the Harvard Law review that never published. Transcripts hidden at Obama direction. Granted he is a excellent speaker when he reads the speech off the teleprompter. Off the cuff comments duhhhhh! The proof is in the pudding show me the pudding!!!



If the proof is in the pudding, Slowboat, you are a shining example of conservatism, since at least half the time your grammar is less than the quality of a 5th grader.

As to "reading off teleprompters", Rush Limbaugh is full of "uh's" during his broadcasts and you'd better believe he's got plenty of feed coming his way.

We'll see if we can make you an icon to post on your blog.

The betting line....

Someone with a hot hand is moderating at The Daily O today. An earlier comment including the words "silent white majority" is gone and I think a couple others were gobbled up.

From what I see on the LTE comments, I'm betting it closes before 5pm today.

But...there's no racism.....

Is it just circumstantial that Jesse Helms, well known racist called Martin Luther King a "Marxist" and the Birthers/Teabaggers have adopted the same tag for Barack Obama?

Jesus Christ!!!

SondraKovacio wrote on 01/15/2010 10:39:08 PM:
Fascinating. I never knew there was a ban on any celebration of Martin Luther King's birthday. That must be why no one here even thought to mention it...let alone be aware of it...let alone celebrate his birthday on the day he was actually born.You people are such sticklers for reminding everyone that Jesus wasn't born on Dec. 24th...


Using your convoluted crap as a logical guide, if Jesus was born on December 24th, why celebrate his birth on December 25th?

For the history challenged:

Senator Jesse Helms (R-North Carolina) led opposition to the bill and questioned whether King was important enough to receive such an honor. He also criticized King's opposition to the Vietnam War and accused him of espousing "action-oriented Marxism". (fascinating.....the "M" word.....sound recently familiar?)

Another forgettable moment - Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted against the creation of the holiday to honor King, and later defended Arizona Republican Governor Evan Mecham's rescinding of the state holiday in honor of King created by his Democratic predecessor. After his opposition grew increasingly untenable, McCain reversed his position, and encouraged his home state of Arizona to recognize the holiday despite opposition from Mecham.

Bottom line: Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a United States holiday marking the birthdate of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., observed on the third Monday of January each year, around the time of King's birthday, January 15.

Sort of like President's Day, that we old folks remember was the combination of Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays, that were once celebrated on February 16 and 22 respectively.

My suggestion to Sondra is that if you aren't old enough to remember this stuff, use that computer sitting in front of you for something other than Beavis and Butthead humor.

Just a sample of the exodus from the medical industry that will be brought on by nationalized care schemes that cripple the deliverers of medical care.


Now, the LTE quote is just some of the stupidity we have learned to accept from old Indy, but the quote for the story on the Obstetrics doctor closing her practice proves that the dipshit doesn't even read the story. As noted by my friend DJW: "Just from the story (and a former Dr. who worked with Dr. Gage) I'm thinking she just failed to realize the market she was getting into."

I've been making light of Indy for some time, as taking him seriously becomes a scarey proposition. Maybe, when The Olympian worries about context, they might moderate this sort of crap out of their newspaper.

sparkle asked in the comments on the tea baggers article....

sparkle wrote on 01/15/2010 11:20:30 AM:

Interesting, I was not aware that comments about some "Tea Party Rally" was the venue to discuss MLK birthday, life, accomplishments, or holiday.

Can somebody please explain what the correlation is, and our need to bring it up on this forum?



It's like this, sparkle. The Head Klown got her fingers slapped and a comment hidden when she took a swipe at Sarahanna, so she did her usual thing by diverting to another topic. That's all it is.....

The Head Klown of the K Krowd was on the receiving end tonight

Klown took a swipe at "Sarahanna" and earned the right to have her comment hidden.

Sarahanna held her ground: sondra whuts yer problem? do you think you own the olympian or something?

reggie followed with: SK - if you worked, maybe you'd understand.

fka_spinnaker wrapped it up with this: Interesting the way you tried to twist the argument, though. I talked about opposition, and you chose to turn that into a 'ban.' After all this time, Sondra, you haven't changed a bit.

The Olympian is TIME-CHALLENGED!

On the comments on the "'Tea Party' activists rally" article the time stamps on the morning comments said "AM", at noon they changed to "PM", but at 1:02 in the afternoon, the time stamps reverted to "AM" again!!! Time will tell what happens at midnight.

You know....it's almost predictable how the Puppet Show starts this crap. Funny part is I've never left, as can be seen on ThurstonBlog. I just took away the target for the Puppet Show shooting gallery.

Also, take a look at how soft the LTEs are. Throw in a good homosexual rant or a "TESC is the problem with the world" and watch the shit hit the fan. There is plenty of crap flying on the first lead page article and I've been posting.....just not under the old name.

Save your schtick for the rubes at The Olympian. When someone creates a half dozen characters to stir shit with one person in the conversation, they try to make it look like I'm the common denominator, thus, remove me and the problem is solved.

Achmed....basically....what I'm saying....is "screw you, I never left, except in your mind" People smarter than me have been changing their handle once a day or once a week. I'll probably do the same. If nothing else, it keeps IndyFelcher wetting his pants.
