Here's an idea...someone ask Eric to post an *official* list of the most urgently needed items?

I thought they were doing that with the GPU Users group & their donation page.


Haven't seen much from them in ages.

As a loyal Buffalo Bills fan, I watch my team anyways. It's been a rough ride for us Bills fans lately with our owner Ralph Wilson Jr passing at 95 years old.

Very well written piece about HoF QB Jim Kelly and his fight against Cancer: http://mmqb.si.com/2014/03/31/jim-kelly-cancer-monday-morning-quarterback/

Here's a piece from the Today show (Audio only): http://www.wham1180.com/onair/bills-blog-52318/listen-full-jim-kelly-piece-from-12204888

I volunteered at Jim Kelly's QB camp when it was at my college for 2 summers and worked with him directly. Nicest guy.

I have reached out to his family via his charitable group Hunter's Hope to ask for his blessing and support in my Relay for Life drive.

[quoteI never directly said it was anyone from the project. If anything I said I was looking in all directions which was what I was directed to do.[/quote]

No Blurf, you quire specifically named names and concocted elaborate scenarios that directly implicated people from the project. To what ends I can only guess, but I haven't forgotten.


I never directly accused anyone from here...never. I truly believe you are incorrect, Es. If you feel so inclined, quote posts please.

As to the statement that we are his family I merely say No.

As to supporting people in the past, that discussion would involve specifics that were mod-list only and/or hidden by past mods. I'm not going to go there.

I will defer to what Eric said in a post just a bit ago "Let's not go digging in that graveyard."

Then I suggest you drop your "outrage" about a single pm and try to recall how you enabled some very unpleasant characters to behave far worse.


Again..."Let's not go digging in that graveyard."

Of course I will continue to try to remain civil to you Blurf, but you have a long way to go before you regain any shred of credibility in my eyes.

The banishment times for Mark must be longer, this is just ridiculous repetitions over and over again.

Ban him for 6-months, or a year. If the same crap continues after that, make it a permanent banishment.


Let me repost an earlier post from someone else...Es, it's not only me with concerns.

Blurf's posturing and threats to the project over one private message are different I think than a constructive discussion on what should actually be done. Blurf isn't discussing, he is ordering and demanding and I don't think that is helpful at all.


I have made no demands and/or threats in this thread..none. I requested "Fred" be involved to try to get some further understanding and factor all into my decision-he/she did. I asked questions-"Fred" and Eric answered. I'm good with it.

I am sorry but I personally do not believe we can do anything to help him. Do I miss the old fun Sattler with kitty pics and such--absolutely. I dread reading on Fridays and seeing the pre-ban posts where he makes racially abusive/homophobic statements. Do I fear for him driving intoxicated and killing someone--absolutely. These are not things we can help him address. Numerous people have pleaded with him (incl myself)-privately and publically- for him to get direct help.

If you want such a discussion, then please--what do you think could be done to effectively address the concerns several people (not only myself) have expressed?

So your solution to someone with a mental illness and alcoholism is to ban them and have them thrown in jail? I can understand the temptation, but you are always portraying yourself as a compassionate person and I am not seeing that at all in your post. Is this how you deal with those who come to you for drug counseling? Or do you try to help with the actual problem they have?

Perhaps you could offer some solution that would actually help Mark and therefore solve things for him, the project and the posters.


As for people who were in my therapeutic situations--they were in therapy. They were at a point of being ready to work on their issues-whether court mandated or voluntarily. There is nothing we can do here, Esme. A full evaluation by a skilled Mental Health/Substance Abuse professional is needed I believe. I believe he's even beyond AA.

..and yes, I remember your "stalking" problem at the time which it turned out to have nothing to do with the project even though you told everyone it did.


I never directly said it was anyone from the project. If anything I said I was looking in all directions which was what I was directed to do.

It seems to me that the project are actually doing something to try and reign in Mark in a compassionate and humane way. So I am wondering what you think you are actually hoping to achieve and why you think your way is better?

Just curious Blurf and wondering why you have such a sense of outrage when in the past you supported people who behaved far worse and more persistently than Mark ever has?


The project is not doing anything but enabling him. I don't believe anyone affiliated with Seti can help him by allowing him to continue acting as he does.

As to the statement that we are his family I merely say No.

As to supporting people in the past, that discussion would involve specifics that were mod-list only and/or hidden by past mods. I'm not going to go there.

I will defer to what Eric said in a post just a bit ago "Let's not go digging in that graveyard."

Eric-I wasn't coming to you because you told me you aren't interested in any discussion or responsibility over the forums anymore-suddenly you are. I'm confused.

Thanks for the thoughts and the information-I do appreciate it
