GIRLZ.
We have an aging group of pioneer has beens, clinging to their lead batteries and news clippings, fearfully resentful of this new world of lithium cells and nice cars. That they would reflexively attack something they have no knowledge of is pathetic.
Mr. Wayland actually had the temerity to call me a liar in a public forum. When I tried to respond, they banned me from the discussion and CONTINUED THE DEBATE WITHOUT ME. Ironically, I"ve received 22 e-mail messages now from their OWN group apologizing for the behavior of their moderators and Wayland. I don't know quite what to make of it all.
In any event, the usual online mllieu. Have strong opinions and comment endlessly on a conference you did not attend and don't have a clue about. It is ever so.
You guys can say what you want, but Wayland started this whole ****.

No Chip. You're allowing your hero to respond, and cutting ME off. You are indeed a cowardly little man. NEDRA is a small cess pool of no note. But if you are going to come out swinging, you can't then throw in the towel and whine like a girl.
You and Wayland have kind of fallen off the worlds radar. But this takes you off mine as well. You are trully craven cowardlly little warts and shouldn't be seen in polite company. With the magic button, you DO indeed get the last word in your little group. But it is a cowardly thing to do, and you'll be known for it quite widely. Check out this week's show. Rather a wider audience than the NEDRA group. If you want to play "who has the podium" you lose.
Sure I know you guys will lambast me for doing this. But if Jack Ricard can post my private messages to him, and Ron can post Jacks private messages, then I have one more for ya.
Its really kind of ironic you and Jack wound up together. You two are the first in history to be banned from the NEDRA forum (and you Ron by several names). And funny that, its for the same reasons.
I don't know what apologies you have been receiving, but you will get none from me.
