I was going to post, then decided on a pm, then said "F it" just leave it alone - but I'm not good at leaving anything alone.

My objective view of what happened here:

I was confused with what exactly you wanted, Todd. Did you just want the posters stories for historical purposes? We used to have a picture thread (Strib?) of all the posters that was a nice thing.

I was going to send you a pm after you and Ian had a little blow up thinking the best approach from here would be to send Ian a pm thanking him for his efforts, apologizing for any misunderstanding and explaining to him exactly what it is you wanted. I have a hard time believing Ian didn't act in good faith. I'm pretty sure I would of flipped too if my efforts were rewarded with criticism.

Another thing that I have found disturbing from as far back as the Strib days is when people comment about PM messages they have with people. P = private


PMs are only private if both people agree they are private messages. IMO. As a rule I treat them as private. Exceptions would be if some asshole sent me a rude, or mean spirited PM, I'm under no legal or moral obligation to keep it private, and the sender should have no expectation of privacy. If the conversations are amicable, there is a moral obligation to keep it private IMO. That said, I have no expectations of my PMs remaining private, but then my PMs are never worse than what I might post publicly. But if some were to make public my PMs, I would probably no longer PM them, and I might think less of them.


I agree ... except I have a little problem with the first sentence. If I'm talking to someone about stuff I wouldn't talk about in public and that person continues the conversation one should assume it is a private conversation, imo.


In that situation I agree you have a legitimate expectation of privacy. IMO the other party has tacitly agreed to grant you that privacy.

And people were up in arms about the thread being hijacked by pics of beautiful women.

It seems to me that some little things have added up to a big thing and this is a shame, because two of our most appreciated posters have backed each other into a corner and the response is to come out fighting. It would really be excellent if they could figure out a way to rise above all this and be at least civil to each other if not friends.

I know those pictures are about 10 years old. My daughter just turned 10 last month. And she looks less than 6 months old in the picture.

The weird thing about that site is that someone else set it up for me and the access password was lost long ago. I can't make any changes or deletions even if I wanted to.

It's with a heavy heart that I have to inform everyone that our friend Greg Tenn passed away this morning.
He had been fighting brain cancer for almost 3 years ... and he actually beat it back ... but it had spread and he endured a long and tough battle.
Never missed a Talk Vikes trip and somehow they won't be the same.
Those of you who had a chance to meet him know what an awesome person he was.
Taught me a few things about adversity and dignity along the way.
RIP my friend.

I'm sad.

He fought like hell.

So glad I got to meet him. We had some great one on one time in Seattle.

I'm crushed. I had no idea he had been fighting such a battle. I met him at the Minnesota get together and really enjoyed him. We lost another good one.

Greg was amazing Art. Lots of people have some of it, others have a lot of it ... Greg had all of it. Total courage through his fight and fortunate to meet him if only a few times. Incredible personality, warm, vibrant and always concerened for others well being, always. Greg was and wife Martha are filled with compassion greatest of which for their 2 daughters. Greg just made folks feel at ease.

Rest in Peace my friend. Wish we could had one more game together so grateful for the time, albeit brief, shared.
