Not where I was going with this thread. I think old Pip has relaxed a bit. No need for that last comment though.
Just had not heard from our Pennsylvanian friend in a while.

It was a cheap shot.  So sorry if I offended BC's many friends here.  From the perspective of one who was on the other end of his diatribes and accusations, at least once a week I breathe a sigh of relief that I can enjoy this site and you all without being personally attacked or watching someone else relentlessly attacked.  High spirited irrational personal attacks seem less frequent and also faster to reasonable resolution this fall.  Maybe we are all relaxing a bit, or maybe since a bunch of us just turned 40 this year we are getting wiser.  In any event, I hope the site remains pleasant and positive and if BC comes back that he works toward the same.  I will try to refrain from pot shots that might exacerbate the situation.  Sorry guys.  I know he contribued immensely to the knowledge of this collecting genre and indeed I respect him for that.  My issue was with his presentation of his amateur sleuthing as facts, when it was simply conjecture and harmful to others.

I wholeheartedly disagree.  "Good riddance"?  You dont have a problem with that?  Brian may have rubbed some people the wrong way but when he went sniffing for crooks and shysters he was almost always correct about them.

I normally just ignore Pipswich since most of what he types is of no consequence.  But posts like this he needs to just keep to himself.  Or replace them with "I like cake."  Whichever....as long as I dont have to read it.  :evil:

Pip is speaking up for a good number of people who prefer to let matters rest and just be thankful certain loud mouth a-holes happen to be missing from the boards as of late. I have no problem ignoring them, but it is nice to just not have them around.

So "Good Riddance" certainly much, much more polite than I have been but I'm glad it was said and it needs to be said, despite protests from the friends and supporters of the snide little weasel and his ilk.

Stating "good riddance" doesnt exactly "let matters rest" as you put it now does it?  If he wanted to do so he would have just kept his trap shut wouldnt you think?  And it is so much easier bashing someone you dislike when they arent there to defend themselves isn't it?  :?

Hey King, I was referring to Pips comment, not yours. There was no reason for Pip to post the "good riddance" line.

I had my disagreements with Brian, too. But he was an asset to this site.

We'll need to elect a new bloodhound if he is indeed gone.

He is peculiarly talented.  I don't think those shoes can be filled.  

I am clearly among those who feel 90% or even 95% right is not good enough when he harms the innocent when wrong.  Nonetheless, even grudgingly one has to respect his skills.  And, I would be the last to argue that he isn't right the vast majority of the time.  

Nonetheless, he obviously contributed to the hobby but also ran a lot of good people away from here.  I refused to be one of them and was not inclined to read laudatory prose to BC without comment.  Frankly, if he came back and exercised his skills with a bit more moderation, even I would probably consider him one of the most valuable members of the community.  He certainly is capable.

Belaboring this, particularly when he is gone, or on hiatus, or whatever, isn't particularly productive.  And, it is troubling that no one seems to know anything about what happened to him.  I don't care for him, but I don't wish him harm or hardship.

So, I propose a toast to Brian.  

Brian, wherever you are, we all wish you well in your endeavors!

He was right aprox 99% of the time as far as I could see. The other time (only instance I know of) he apologized immediately.
harmful to others


It's fine with me if by doing "harm" to you, for example, it cuts down on the "harm" that you were doing to others Pip :wink:

And what harm is that?


The harm that occurs when you approach Ebay sellers after auctions are completed and then you negotiate a deal with that "seller" for the "buyers" won item/s. Then pretend that you're somehow an "ethical" person :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:
Then "good riddance" to the 1st person who recognized what you're all about...

OK . . . isn't this all old news?  Bclarkie vs. Pipswich, done that.  Bclarkie vs. others, many times.  Pipswich vs. others, ditto.

Time wounds all heals, I guess.
