    I agree to certain extent. I think there's a difference between asking honest questions and being inflammatory just to get a rise out of people. I've never met the guy, but I have read a lot of his comments on here before I got tired of the girl drama and blocked them. One of the nice parts of current geocaching is the plethora of caches out there. I can go out, have fun, find hides and support cachers that I think are in it for the love of the game and outdoors. I work in a high school, thank goodness I don't have to cache with a freshman mentality.

    By the way, I still feel terrible for being the last person to drop of some of your coins that disappeared a few years ago. Maybe Karma has caught up and I've written them a ticket.

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Girl drama? Oh come off it..... sound's sexist. And I'm not even a female!

    All I have to say, is that MainePublisher and I have put our past behind us, and we have moved forward and I thank TAT for his part in doing what he did for me recently.

    Now.... I did come on here tonight to post something.... which maybe considered "drama" but I am actually yawning.... been caching all day. I guess it will have to wait for tomorrow....

    Goodnight!

    Oh EH . . . was it the kids that changed you? I used to remember your rants against your favorite person in the whole wide world . . . RQ's best buddy. The funny thing is . . . folks still remember you there and occasionally mention wishing you were back . . . I never minded your posts . . . honestly most seemed pretty straight forward . . . just one's opinion. Never could figure out why speaking your mind in the way you did got you banned. I will say though . . . you really do seem to have mellowed a bit over the years . . . perhaps it was having two daughters! I feel for you . . . you are way outnumbered now.

    I just realized getting all wound up over some computer idiots was probably not good for my blood pressure! Funny how that Millinocket thing all worked out. Simply put I got banned because I criticized one of Sledmaine.com biggest sponsors. MONEY! And as we all found out later that guy was the SCUM BAG we were told he was. I wish I could be back there but I am still banned to this day. What was that like 8 years ago now or something? What really made me angry was the sites owners/admin LOVED the ratings I got them and were all grins when I would see them in person. UNTIL I made some comments about that particular sponsor that was backdooring the entire sledding community with Roxeanne. Then they turned downright ugly. Nice guys. No warnings. Nothing. I was just asking some questions from the people that were discussing the issue and I think we ALL got banned. Dont question discussion board authorities I guess.

    Where the hell is that thing?

    I think it depends on the BBS . . . a woodstove forum that I am on is very easy going with most folks . . . I only know of one or two folks that have been banned . . . and the owner is a wicked nice guy . . . very easy going . . . very liberal . . . yet he still welcomes differences of opinion if folks are civil.

    With most BBS you would be right and the owner is a wicked nice guy . . . very easy going . . . very liberal . . . yet he still welcomes differences of opinion if folks are civil.
    But those guys were taking their marching orders from the pocket book and the legal threats of a certain Ex-Millinocket councilman who was a business sponsor of their site.
