    Enough people were involved in this mess to warrant a public announcement.

    Quote: It does seem a little gutless to castigate someone on a forum where he has no defense, (since he is banned).

    Where else would I clear this up? This all took place here and involved many people who are regular members here.

    .
    How many other people do the mods allow to be villified here?
    Wait a minute. I do not see any named individual being vilified. The culprit could be any number of people banned from this forum. The way I read this thread, ludwig777 foolishly allowed someone that he trusted to use his account. This person turned out to resort to antisocial behavior, much to ludwig777 embarrassment. He is apologizing for his lapse in good judgement.

    Since it is obvious to me and so many other people who we are talking about, it didn't seem anonymous to me, but I suppose it really is and I guess I lost sight of that.

    Yeah, the gutless comment was not intended for Ludwig. Starting this thread took a lot of guts.

    I guess I didn't realize how far-reaching this situation was.

    Thanks for the responses and now I am done sticking my nose where it doesn't belong.

    Am I the only one here who has no idea who we are talking about?

    Could someone let me in on this so I know who to watch out for?

    Mike let someone use his screename for a an auction item (check the link he provided) and the guy was being a jerk under Mike's screename, hence making it look like mike was the one saying comments that were rash and not like Mike would talk. So he's saying he's sorry for providing his sn to someone else that was banned.

    He just is a big hearted guy

    ^^ I know that much. ^^

    What I was asking is who is the guy that used ludwig777's name in the first place? Who is the guy who got banned? I want to know who he is so I can watch out for him. And I'm sure the other forum n00bs whould like to know who to watch out for.

    Hey CopcarFC, I understand your concern, but the only reason for this post by Ludwig was to clear his name, not to identify banned members.

    What I can tell you is this. If any member, banned or not, PMs you with requests or comments that you find questionable, PM a mod--pronto!

    There really is nothing to 'watch out for' IMO as this incident was the result of misplaced trust.

    I hope this helps for now.

    If I know who suckered Mike in, it was our infamous member "nathaniel" as this sounds like something he would do. Also informally known as "lol" He comes across as a nice guy but is a backstabber as displayed by what happened to Mike.
