MJ wrote me today:
"I am TOTALLY creeped out by ur "Percentages"Of me... It borders on STALKER CREEPY that you follow me to WhiteBlaze, and again CREEPY... I see tho you failed, pathetically, to point this out:
I'm all About PIF brother, and that's a small example... I guess I need 1800+ posts before you know me... MJ
BTW.... PM sent cuz I didn't want to embarrass you on BPL... Yet..."
So I have replied below:
I apologize for appearing creepy to you. That was not intended. I have never gone to White Blaze but you negatively referenced them in one of your earliest posts on BPL so I included that. The link you provided certainly shows another side to your character. Kudos to you.
I did intend to point out that by an large your posts appeared to be about buying and selling and editorial comments about things that bothered you. I myself spend most of my time on BPL looking for deals and someday I plan on selling here as well. I also have never had an issue with people pointing out conflicts of interest or the inherent inconsistencies within any on-line group I have ever been involved in. However, I draw the line at name calling and bullying. I simply feel that someone needs to stand up to all forms of bullying. Since i witnessed it, I will do something about it. Whether that is good or bad, that is how I was raised. I do hope you understand.
If you want to attempt to embarrass me, feel free to do so. I am far from perfect and can always use constructive criticism so I can improve. I know I often type first and think later. In the past when I was tight on funds I sometimes would take a day or two longer than planned to pay with a money order. Sometimes I even took an extra long time to respond to an e-mail. So I know I need to improve. I appreciate your efforts to assist me on this path.
I certainly wish you the best and look forward to future correspondence with you whether public or private.
