I don’t give a g.d dam. About drama Denton.
I just spoke up when I could.
You do you bud. I’m going to be mia for a long while.
Best of luck.

First, I'm not going anywhere. I left that thread, nothing more. Reading through this one... @Denton ? You locked it? Works for me, lol. @Annie - No reason to "split" it now cause all the interesting posts when the shitfest started got deleted.
Ok folks, the whole story. TT was strange, we all are strange. Nothing wrong with that. He posted weird shit all over, but our stuff aint always the best smelling. Was it annoying? You betcha. A lot of you (and likely me) are also very annoying. That's life in the land of forums.
BUT for some reason, TT felt it was okay to frequently PM me with his phone number, telling me really personal shit, inviting me each time to call. From the start I asked, then told, him to quit PMing me. After that last time of him starting up with the creep in my thread, and him yet again messaging me asking personal things - I decided to turn it over to the Mods. I copied to Denton, Sasquatch and RPD his last PM along with my reply. I was in hopes that one of them would contact him privately and tell him to knock it off.
Before (guesssing) they had a chance to do that, and being still pissed off about it, I went over to the orange site and vented about it. I had no idea that would 'loose the hounds', but it did, and I take responsibility for that aspect and I'm also grateful that such a fine group of guys have my six.
Also know - that this wasn't just about me. I've been a Mod on forums and it's always a real good possibility that a member is hitting on more than one person. Other than the pain in the ass factor - he could have caused me no harm. But there are some new females that have joined recently - and I needed to let staff know about TT for their benefit as well.
Regarding that thread - it was my hopes that all this drama could just be taken off of it, and let it go back to what it was. Not because my words are something special - but the information and effort that it contains - from a LOT of contributors - can still be a good resource for those who are seriously interested in this aspect of prepping...
and that's what we're here for.
Well, that and the Bourbon.
Perpetual IMO applied.

MG, in your PM that I received, all I could see was your response to the individual in question. What he originally messaged to you did not make it through.
So, not knowing the background story, I took no action.
Sorry if I let you down - you know the real me, and you probably realize I would have your back. At least I hope you do.
