Due to circumstances beyond my control, I will no longer be able to post on these message boards. My time on here has been extremely fun and educational. I have learned from people hereon and count some of you as friends in the real world.

However, someone on these boards has taken it upon themselves to not only forcibly insert themselves into my gaming life, but my personal and business life as well. This person has caused me to lose faith in how people treat one another. I do not know what this person has against me or why they did this. Rather than bringing any perceived inequity or slight to my attention, they chose to go behind my back and reach out to people in my personal, business and gaming life.

The Wizard is aware of this and will be on the lookout for any other complaints about this person (as I have their real name, just not their screen name). I hope you all stay untouched by this person's actions and that you all have positive variance in all aspects of your lives. I will stick around to comment on this thread but will no longer post any trip reports or any other threads.

Dude. That sucks. Ain't gonna be the same without the trip reports. That's how I spent New Years Eve- home with a beer (or ten) and MacBook, following Ace in A.C.

Hopefully something will change that will have you return. Otherwise, you will be missed.




Well, I will miss the trip reports and running commentary as well. It is a shame that someone decided to attempt to insert themselves into my life off of the boards in a negative way. I cannot comprehend what their motivation was. It is actually a bit scary that someone could and would do that.

I'm sorry to see you go. Your contributions were very beneficial to the site. I hope to stay in touch outside of the forum.

That sounds as if some of that took place in Jersey. If so, that is especially crappy.
You brought a lot to the table.

I wish I could reveal what they tried to do to me...but, the Wizard is the only one who knows. This is so if anyone complains of the same thing, it will be legitimate and not someone looking to just goof off.

Obviously I have no idea what happened, but it sure doesn't seem to make any sense to me to stop doing something you are enjoying. I'm sure you could change a thing or two (don't post where your going to be, stop posting trip reports real time and just post after, etc) and still get the benefits of participating in the forum.

I had a similar type of thing happen when I was umpiring Little League baseball. I almost let one person ruin it for me and for what I was giving to the kids of the community.

I understand you might have some initial fears about whatever happened, but take a step back and allow yourself to conquer the situation, not the other person to conquer you.
