    [​IMG] This makes me sincerely sad. I apologize, RJ, that I had catalyzed this thread that may have made you feel obligated to explain your current situation. You and I both know that we weren't e-buddies, but I did enjoy your presence here and noted your absence, and I find it deplorable that someone holds such malice against you over discussions held on freaking fashion message boards.

    RJman, sorry to hear this and I back your position 100%. I had an idiot make some cracks about my wife a while ago and it's the only time in over 15 years of the InterWebs that I felt the need to be even remotely ITG. I wholeheartedly back your decision. Send a PM once in a while, if you have a pithy rejoinder to something you read.

    You'll be missed, RJ. I can't believe your situation, your antagonist is absolutely pathetic. Good luck!

    Sorry to hear that. That's why my family and g/f and I intuitively have kept/are keeping our online presences widely separate (not cause we would want to hide anything from one another [of course we also do]: my mom e.g. is also a completely crazy artist) but there are some really idiotic persons around who are mainly jealousy or genuinely crazy [​IMG] who may do something like you described...I understand you, maybe take a break for a year and then maybe you'll have enough distance to ignore all that, and will have new motivation to maybe post strictly subject-related gems here and there, at first...anyway, best wishes, H.

    RJ, Damn, that is truly horrible!!!!!!

    May internet tough guys and paranoids roast in hell.

    You are one of the few that I really liked and respected as to wit and intelligence as you know.

    I've got your Email somewhere or please PM me.

    At this point in my life, my life is primarily an open book.

    But it's your choice whether to name the SOB you suspect or let it go.

    Hopefully it will put a smile on your face to know that I've got one inside cat currently, Squeaky Jones, who is horrendously spoiled. And our block has about 15-20 outside cats that we compete against to see who can treat them the best.

    Right now the outside winner is feeding the babies Sheba but I'm hoping for a good year and I'll outdo him.

    I don't want to have to keep defending and making these points to the ever-renewing horde of tire-kickers, late-comers and water-carriers for the trolls. To anyone who says, lighten up, it's just the Internet, well, they can fucking have it.

    +10 trillion. Mighty fucking sick of this "argument." You assholes know who you are. Most of you, anyway.

    I'm still around, for a while, but I was always more pugilistic than RJ.

    ya it was. RJ reported it to me at the time, in both a mod and friend capacity. Other than letting him know that we'd never let it stand here, there was nothing I could do as a mod (it happened on another board, by someone long banned from here, and to his credit, FNB pulled it down pretty quickly) and as a friend, all I could do was listen. He said at the time he was done with the forums, but still, thought he'd be back...he'd taken several hiatuses before.

    I would say he is one of the people who has made an effort to keep his online persona pretty far from his personal life (in all the years he has been around the board, there are probably less than a handful of people who even know his first name, and to my knowledge, the only picture of him ever posted was my fault, when I put up a link to a gallery of photos of me in France) - so certainly he never opened himself up to that kind of scrutiny in the way that others do. As such, I do understand why he would take it pretty seriously when the scrutiny finds its way to him.

    Anyhow, as mod, member and friend, I am really sad to hear that he means it this time - one of my favorite posters, and a legitimately great guy to be around.

    Yeah, I know his first and last name but you'd have to kill me to get it out of me.

    This incident makes me reconsider the time I spend on SF,

    I know some like me and some do not and I could give a shit.

    I love my historical Texas threads but I can just see some loser internet shithead stirring up trouble.

    It's really sad when decent people can't interact civilly.

    RJ you got my solidarity.

    I wish you well with your decision and be your life full of joy and free of these Interwebz BS.

    I really can't measure how a loser a guy can be to harass someone for differences of opinions on a clothing forum. Incredible.
