Nice deflection...but Captain notwithstanding, how did you know?



And, what's your conclusion?...the one that you claimed that you could draw...

I wasn't defecting. If I'm not mistaking I said it was likely/ reasonable to believe that was the case given how everything went down.

Either way, it certainly seems reasonable that within that entire amount of time given the circumstances that he would. If he didn't, I wonder why not? It's reasonable for me to believe that he knew it wasn't true. And if he did, I wonder why he didn't set the record straight. Especially, given his profession.

My take, at the time, was that AM had quit on his profession in a lot of ways, which was disturbing to me as a trained journalist. He very rarely backed up and admitted, "I was wrong" in that stretch. The tip-offs for me were:

1) The whole thing where a certain poster said I wasn't me. AM volunteered to verify I was me (that redietz was the R.E.Dietz in some sports weeklies and who had won contests and worked briefly for Billy Walters). I put together a package of articles, columns from Playbook, a Humanist piece I had published, Op Eds, some with my smiling face, and so on, and then he wouldn't open, or even pick up, the package of articles.

2) The thing where he decided blackjack players couldn't count two tables simultaneously and published blurry photos to prove it. So me, who knows zip about blackjack, went and measured distances at various adjacent tables and tested acuity at those distances to see if it could be done. Bulletin: It can.

3) I had PM'ed him a link to when I won 25K in SB bets by finishing first in a season-long contest. He suggested I post it. I declined. Later, when a doofus said I was making it up, AM refused to shoot him down. Crickets.


That was no way for a journalist to conduct himself.

Guys.

I have sympathy, but you're all digging up 5+ year grudges from 3 different forums worth of chatter about a member who was nuked several years ago and it's all second hand or worse at this point. Nobody is changing anybody's mind, and it was bad enough the first time around.

Let's move on, please, and leave flogged horses in their graves.

Thanks.

Once Axel decides that something has happened a certain way, or is a certain thing, he'll keep repeating it and won't let go, even in the wake of others' having already decided that it happened a different way, or was a different thing.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

Why did this need to be said, especially after I asked nicely for us to move on? You're extending a petty squabble with a petty post. You must have something better to do in Vegas on a Friday night.

Babs, I didn't know you were up on that archeology! You poor soul.

Moving on, with pleasure, although...I did learn a helluva lot from the "counting two tables" topic.

For a while I made parody posts in regards to Nathan, who was obviously a fraud and was later proven as such. I received no suspension. I did receive accolades.

Was it she wasn't really a black woman working at Walgreen's in Florida or was it she was a former banned member? I remember something about her eating all the cookies, but not much more.
