    Let me re-phrase that...

    WTF????

    How'd he get access to Squirrel Land?

    that was why he was banned once.

    He learned inadvertently that timed out users could view squirrel - some weird little hole in the settings that J closed a day or so later. When the time out ended, he posted weird little nuggets of squirrel miscellanea around the place - just a few words here and there that made us go 'how the hell did he know that'...we worked it out, and banned him. Horace too IIRC.

    Since there's a little down moment in this thread, I thought I'd ask a question that I'm sure was answered before but... why again can't we get a "reply all" function in the PM system?

    You didn't get the PMs?? You must have been dropped off the inner circle PM distribution list... cause there's no "reply all" function

    He is not lost, you know. I know where you can find him if you miss him so much. I suspect that you know too, but don't want to go and play with him there. I can understand that. What I can't understand is why someone who won't go and play with him there nonetheless insists that he be allowed to bring his special brand of bile here.

    Okay, all that other stuff was cool, but I'm gonna have to pull rank on you here and lay down the kibosh. The answer is no. If anything, he is underrated.

    I can't like him after his tactless loss to Shogun.

    He doesn't run the show here. It's impossible to be on an equal footing with another when he owns the show.

    And I will note that my post that lead to the above request ... acknowledges that others won't feel similarly ... and I respect that. At one point (before I edited) that post went so far as to say ... Were I Manton ... I might feel differently ... and with good reason. Perhaps I shouldn't have removed that comment ... but I thought it unfair to "single you out."

    Here is the other post:

    There have been a couple of references to FNB … whom I have come to miss. Of course, my own one-on-one SF experience of FNB was not perhaps as rough-and-tumble as the experiences of certain others. I know some SF members feel very differently … and I respect that.

    FNB certainly wasn’t fond of my style of dress (well, one of them ... A&S comes to mind) … and was very outspoken about his feelings. Even so, I never felt truly insulted by him. I fondly remember the time he referred to my manner of dress as an anachronism. I responded with some comment about the Concorde having been an anachronism. He retorted suggesting my style was more akin to the Spruce Goose. I thought I was going to die laughing ... because in a way ... he was right.

    In his dealing with me -- and I’m speaking only from my own experience -- more often than not he seemed rather good-natured … albeit with a sharp snarky side. Of course, I've been told that I'm a tad naive about these things. It’s even been suggested that I often miss the blatant insult that is lobbed my or another’s way. Maybe so ... maybe not. But the way I look at it ... if it's naivety ... please don’t enlighten me too much.

    ^^^Manton ... perhaps I feel the way I do because I've been very successful in my own business ... to the point that I am often the topic of other's conversations ... some of it polite ... some not so polite ... some of it truthful ... some an outright lie ... much of it a matter of opinion based on a lack of facts. I've had peole talk about me to my face ... without even realizing that I'm the person they're dishing.


    And maybe having Hollywood clients -- to whom this happens day in and day out -- has helped me to understand that this is just gonna happen if one is truly succesful at what s/he does.
