I totally agree with Babs on this. Actually, I think "Tacky" is an understatement.

Was Dan involved in the bet? This is the first I've heard of a welch (I don't follow every thread), but knowing Dan's character, I know the answer to that question.

Therefore, why punish Dan's widow?


Either make a donation or STFU.



Ditto.

I think I need to clarify; can't leave this inference out there. These are references to other threads and other off-the-board events.

WoN had bet the No with HotBlonde in her Challenge II weight loss thread. The decision point was her birthday in Mid-May. There has been no notice to the forum that the bet has been settled, though some acknowledgement that the No won. Dan was not a party to this bet.

WoN is tying his donation to a condition that he get this money from HB before he donates, implying/claiming that he's owed money that must be paid before he will follow through.

My read on this is it's public shaming intended to put peer pressure on HB from here, not in line or in spirit with the forum intent to help Dan's widow. So I called him out on it.

Sorry the donation for dan isn't coming - I'm still waiting to be paid on the weight loss challenge



Ridiculous comment and you'd have been better off not commenting at all.

I'm in 100% agreement with Babs post. I had been thinking about it since reading it and wanted to react but didn't want anyone thinking I was coming down on another member; which is exactly what would have happened. So from a member to an administrator I commend your to the point, no nonsense call to WofN.

Tying a donation to an unrelated bet is about as classless as it gets. I'm not really sure how one redeems them self from this sort of despicable action.

Confirmation from Dan's widow on receipt of at least $500 from WoN would go a long way towards redemption, but I don't think WoN has it in him.

It certainly worked as far as the public shaming goes. Just not the way he intended.

Paying penance is BS in this case. There's a big difference between someone stealing a loaf of bread because they are starving and someone stealing to buy kiddie porn. My post was to point out the sacrilege of the guys action.

I can pay a fine to society for a speeding ticket. I can't simply pay a fine for running a red light and taking out a family of four in a crosswalk while intoxicated.

I am with you on the outrage regarding the post MP, but this was an insensitive post, a moronic post, whatever you want to label it...but nobody's life is irreparably changed as a result of the it.

Four pedestrians aren't dead in this case. WoN needs to be a big boy here and make up for it and they way he does that in my opinion is by making a large donation to the cause & now. Dan's family needs some help and this community is an appropriate place to ask for it...let's keep the focus there.

WoN has opened his mouth loudly on the topic, so time to open the wallet just as wide!

So let me open a can of worms here,Would Dan want his family to accept money that came from ap,ing casinos.
I mean Dan was so Vehemently opposed to it.
It would be like someone, anti drugs accepting donations from a pot grower.
What we've got here is failure to communicate
