Jaeger companies figured prominently at Long Island and the Brandywine.  I also presume that there were jaegers among the Hessians captured at Trenton and Saratoga...although accounts of those battles most prominently feature Hessian grenadiers and dragoons.


Coincidentally, I'm reading a book right now about the American Revolution ("1776", by David McCullough). The chapter I just finished recounts a Hessian regiment of jaegers storming Fort Washington.According to the book, one of Washington's poorer decisions to leave the fort occupied as he retreated from Manhattan to New Jersey.

It also notes the jaegers were thorough professionals, with officers not considering it part of their duty to determine which side was in the right in the dispute.

One wonders about Washington's military judgement in the 1776 campaign leading up to and away from New York.  I suspect there were political considerations affecting his military decisions...or maybe just inexperience.

I would be interested to know, was it a "regiment" of jaegers or a force of jaeger companies drawn from different regiments.

In British and American regiments, they would be regarded as "flank companies," along with the grenadiers...and were often detached from their regiments and brigaded together for special missions.

For instance, it was a brigaded mass of grenadiers and light infantrymen who were battered and driven so badly at Lexington and Concorde...saved and then joined in route by 1200 regular infantry.  It was the confusion caused by mixed regiments and mis-matched officers and troops that contributed to the debacle.

I see that I have gone off topic....I'll post it anyway...hope someone was interested.... :?

Look, for one thing I likely won't get tired of accessing this site or the forum. In fact it's pretty depressing not having access to it during the day at my normal job. Drats. One thing I'd love to know though is why am I banned from viewing the main site as well?? Just doesn't make any sense.

Anyway, that being said I want everyone here on the forum to know, bclarkie aside, I *never* meant any harm or distress to anyon here. I am very sorry everything fell apart and in the end I was banned. To this second I disagree with being banned, but as a fellow forum owner I understand and support the right of the admin to make their own rules. And besides, who would win a fight between me and bc? He has like 4000 messages. Clearly I loose there. Anyway, I support the admin on banning me purely because that is his right, but I still feel strongly that the reason itself was entirely unjustified. Entirely.

I want to say again that I publically apologize to the entire forum for the fact that my brother bid on my auctions and that any of it approached concerns and realities of shilling. I really honestly do apologize and it's never occured since. That is for the record. It was a mistake and I fully apologize. My brother is real though, as is his account, etc, etc, etc.

In closing, I will be around of course, but not very actively. I have around 5000 minis to sort through now so that will take up a lot of my time. For those that have been emailing me we will continue to be in contact of course.

Oh, btw, really neat news... today at a local rumage sale I found a copy of Talisman 2nd ed with the Adventure exp!! For 2 bucks! Wow.

Anyway, all the best to all of you and thanks for reading.

Like that really has anything to do with why you were banned.  :?   By using that logic, bclarkie or any other member with several thousand posts could do pretty much anything they wanted, piss off every forum member, break any and all internet protocol and just be a complete dick and they would still get the benefit of the doubt.  I dont think so.

Back Again? Could you be anyomore pathetic?  Dude, I guess I must not be the "stalker" that you claim that I am because you just keep coming back.  You may be in fact the biggest freaking loser that I have seen in my entire 33 years on this planet and believe me that is saying a lot because I have dealt with some pathetic people before.  You have been exposed to be everything that I proved you were and now you are working so hard to prove that are even a more pathetic loser then everybody could already see for themselves.

oh and BTW, I think I will bust you in another lie just for old times sake:

This comes directy from your post and yet after saying this you not only have continued to post here you also state very clearly:

d90 wrote:In closing, I will be around of course, but not very actively.


Which is a clear contradiction in the statement that you said above and shows quite clearly that you are liar. You actually can't even type three shrot paragraphs without lying.   If you supported the admin's decision the you would get a life and go annoy someone else with your lies and patheticness.

As I recall, Jpipes apologized for what he did at the time, and stated that it would not happen again.

So far as I can tell, after the three or so original auctions where Jpipes' brother bid, there have been no repeats of the offense.  

The original offense involved only a few dollars...hardly a serious criminal campaign from my point of view.

Wouldn't you agree that acknowledging what he did, apologizing and promising not to do it again puts Jpipes in a category somewhat above other problem sellers?

Jpipes is banned...which probably wrankles quite a bit.  Coming back to post makes him naughty, but it doesn't exactly make him Hannibal Lector.

This whole series of events has not been the most glorious moment for the Acaeum.

You've understated the problem in an attempt to be reasonable, Mark.

Coming back to post after you've been banned is not only disrespectful to the admin, it's illegal.  You don't have a right to be here without Foul's permission.  He explicitly revoked that permission in jpipes' case.  ;)

The rest of the issue is moot.  If I were Foul, I'd consider legal action should he continue to connect to the server.

Mark, its quite obvious that our viewpoints are very divergent and franky I don't get you at all.  Why is that you seem to defend just about every "shady dealer" that we post on here. Christ, some guy blatantly stole Shane's money several months ago and you defended the guy by saying, "Well he just seems unorganized, he probably didn't mean to steal his money."  Dude, HE STOLE HIS F***KNG MONEY!!  It wasn't an accident or a misunderstanding, HE STOLE HIS MONEY!!  If thats is not Shady then what is???  I honestly hope that in real life that you are not this naive.

Now back onto jpipes.  First off and formost have you even read the stuff that I pointed out in this thread?  Its evident that you haven't because jpipes has been lying continuously since he has been on this site.  His apology was hollow and still continues to be because he sadi and continues to say, "I am sorry, but...."  Thats not an apology or an admission of guilt, thats an excuse at best and outright lie at worst.  He has screwed over several members of this forum here already and has been banned by Foulfoot for threats and yet somehow you seem to think that what he has done and still continues to do is not wrong. :?   If that is not wrong that what exactly do you qualify as wrong.  

As far as you saying it was only a few dollars and that is okay are you offereing to compensate all of those people that jpipes shillied in his auctions for the money that they are out?  His brothers bids are a flat out lie as I proved earlier on in this thread, those bids where placed by none other than jpipes himself.  In conjunction with that I listed a total of 8 auctions that jpipes "accidentally" shilled and I still had 6 more months of auctions to go.  Assuming that I came up with 3 per month as a conservative estimate, that comes to a total of 26 auctions that he shilled that I can find.    Is that still okay??? If in your mind it is, I will research the amount of money that jpipes bid his auctions up on and I will send you the total.  You can Paypal me the money that it was okay for people to have gotten fucked out of and I will make an large scale effort to compensate those people that lost out because of jpipes shilling.

Your absolutely correct and I am assuming that is why jpipes keeps coming here.  He is trying to piss people off and seperate us, nothing would make him more happy.  :evil:

In response to that point, Mark, I apologize that my point was so strong. It is not my intent to start a fight with you, nor is it my intent to try and put you down.  I am simply trying to get you to understand that jpipes is not the nice guy that he keeps claiming that he is. His intentions then and his intentions now remain the same as evidenced by his continued posts here and they are anyhting but good.   I can not stress strongly enough that he is most certainly not a good person and should be avoided at all costs.

Ok guys group hug ....  8)

It is fasinating how shady sellers have this common theme where they take on muliple personas.  They use these personas to justify their actions.  Almost as if they know what they are doing is wrong but need to be able to justify it to themselves.

Given that jpipes decide to post again using a persona which defended jpipes I would find it hard to believe any excuse about his brothers involvement.

I want to second that.  I can understand why tempers run high when dealing with idiots - but we should be careful when dealing with good members here.  It is easy to misinterpret comments typed in haste or misjudge tone of voice on a board like this.  :D

Sorry Mike.... you'll enjoy the book though, I thought it very well written. Plus I only had a vague understanding of the war in general before, so a lot of what it contained was new to me.

Mark - jpipes wasn't banned for shilling, or for the ongoing argument with Brian. He was banned for making direct threats against the site admin in the contentious thread. Those threats were deleted and Foul banned him.

As always, Bombadil is the voice of reason and calm in fractious times.

For the record, I have *no* desire to, as it has been said above, "set fellow members against one another". I think that is silly and I have zero interest in that. Besides, if anyone is at each others throats it would have nothing to do with me and everything to do with personalities to begin with.

Also for the record, it's not possible to stalk a web forum. Who ever suggested I'm now the one stalking needs to understand what the term means. I'm simply posting messages to a public forum. My other account was removed and I have heard nothing since. If the admin wants to discuss this with me, contact me via email to do so.

Someone suggested I am doing something illegal by posting here. I am in fact doing nothing illegal, that suggestion is absurd. I am a fellow forum owner (a very large one in fact) so I am well aware of the ins and outs of forum memberships and admin and the rights and processes therein. I was never sent an email saying I could never again use this forum or never again register with the site. No where do I see it posted on this forum the process for banning, the steps to be taken, if one is allowed to register again, how many times, where, when, etc, etc, etc. I have sent messages to the forum admin asking for contact regarding this matter and I have received nothing in return. Sorry, but if my posting is no longer allowed I will need some form of contact from the admin to establish that and discuss as needed. Until that time posting doesn't seem to be a problem of any sort at all. I am no longer using my original account and that was the account that was removed, so I have to make new ones.

My suggestion is for everyone, myself included, to put this entire thing to rest and move on. I have already admitted many times I was at fault for the minor issue in the first place so I really don't see a need to continue to  discuss it. In fact the entire thing should be deleted. But as long as people are posting here on it I will continue to defend myself as required. And making that suggestion is NOT a threat against the forum admin. I never made threats against the forum admin that are threats in any real sense. Saying I will excerise my rights is not a threat. I even went so far to say I  was sorry of the admin misunderstood my original posting. Again, no response.

At any rate, just wanted to say, again, I apologize for the original error that caused all this but I also retain the right to defend myself in public.

Admin, also fyi, whatever you did to the forum it worked as I am now able to access the main site again from home with no problems. I was worried as I would hate to not have access for my research, etc.
