  • Thanks for the Help

    I had a ton of emails from people taking the time to alert me that my old friend Nelson was back. Since I had more emails than I have time to reply to, I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation here.

    I’m sure Nelson considered this strike a success; I noted that his site’s “most users” number peaked shortly after his thread here as the curious followed the link to his site. So, this won’t be the last of him. All I ask is that you try not to get drawn into his rants and attacks. I know it is hard to keep quiet when he is attacking board members, but he is here to make as much noise and trouble as he can and arguing only helps his cause. He’s a pretty unique guy, that’s for sure.

    If he posts again we should simply ignore him that would hurt him more than anything we can say.Alistair

      What's his handle? Is it "Nelson"?

        Ha. Reminds me of the quip about the masochist who says, "Please hit me" and the sadist, after a moment's thought, says, "No".

        I normally try to avoid stepping in "stuff" but it is sometimes hard not to get drawn in on something that so richly deserves a smart retort.

          He uses whatever name he can to get on the board. He was on last week under two different names and used a third yesterday. Since those names are locked out, it will be something new the next time you see him.

          I agree with Alistair, just ignore him. That’s what we used to do when my daughter had fits and she seems to be turning out okay!

              Are we to take from this that at some point Nelson will turn out okay?

                I think he just shot off all ten toes, potential paying advertisers for his forum might be lurking....

                  Perhaps one day he will learn to benefit from positive attention rather than negative attention. Probably asking way too much there.

                    If he's using a static IP address then it would be funny if the BBS software had an account setting (for all accounts present and future from same IP address) that makes all posts invisible to others.
