I received a pm today that frankly, offended the hell out of me, not because of who it was written by but, because of what was implied in the message. Let me make this clear to you guys, I do not participate in back door politics here. I do not call Dave, the Mods, owners or admins to get people banned. I do not talk crap about you guys and anybody who thinks I do has their head up their ass. I will not be used as a scape goat by the banned or the people doing the banning. I'm tired of all the petty horse s@#t that has been going around here. Do not involve me in this. Do not accuse or imply that I would do this crap. If I have a problem with you guys I would communicate that with you personally. I may not agree with every post that people make but, I respect the right you have to your opinion. I would never fault you for that and I most certainly would not get you banned. I'm going to post this pm with some edits and my reply. The Mods can remove it if they like I really don't care. I'm tired and have many more problems that are way more important than getting people banned. What horse @#$%.
I know I'm Public Enemy #1 and you may be one of the top guys who hate me, maybe even having gone so far as to complain to Dave, but I just wanted to say thanks for many of your posts over the years. You taught me A LOT. Dave's had enough of me so I'm getting the boot in a day or two. Thanks again."
"what are you talking about? I don't hate you at all. I like your post they keep everybody honest. I never talk to Dave or the mods and most certainly have never talked to Dave or the mods about you. I do not know where you got that information but, you are completely wrong. I'm stunned that you would even think that of me. I do not get involved in anybodies politics here. Honestly I will miss your post and will be saddened to see you go. Thank you for the compliment. I promise you it wasn't me. If I had a problem with you I would tell you first and we would work it out. One thing I can't stand is back stabbing. This is total horseshit.
