Hi Bill, thanks for bumping this thread
So much fun! You internet keyboard-warrior-detective-ninjas are a hoot! Just realized that this guy causes you all so much perturbation that you have two threads about him! Moan your little gripes. Shake your little fists. Pure comedy gold.
The folks here are laughing at the way you mis-manage TNP, Bill, and at the way you tried to pass off a transpinnay mail-order marriage scheme as an editorial project to your mostly over-fifty, white, frustrated male nerd reader base.
No one here is angry at you. Not anymore. Nothing we can do or say could equal the damage you yourself have done to your so-called wargaming site. All you have to do is look at how much money it brings you today as opposed to, say, six years ago.
So what we have here is a dozen or so guys who have a chuckle at you and your antics, most of whom have had nasty run-ins with you in the past. We’d maybe be gnashing our teeth and shaking our little fists if you were halfway successful in life — or even in that odd-smelling corner of life called “wargaming”. But since that’s not the case, and since you’ve shown the most fetching ability to reliably shoot yourself in the foot and have thus become one of the biggest jokes in the hobby, well, we just gather here from time to time to meanspiritedly giggle at your flailing about.
Who but Bill Armintrout could possibly give a sloppy fuck about what we have to say here or spend so much time trolling us? The only other possibility would be someone who has been banned from TNP and also has been driven from here (at least as a non-anonymous voice). Someone like JJ Parus, noted dogfucker from Virginia Beach, say, or Jimbo the Parks & Recreation Restroom specialist from the British Rustbelt.
No one else could possibly give a fuck. So let me add my thanks for your helping keep this conversation alive. It probably would have long died out if you had ignored it.
