When I read the OP, I didn't take it as meaning that he had died. I just took it as a salute to an awesome poster.
You are 100% correct. I never said that Hawkeye passed. I just wanted to make a thread that celebrated one
of the great posters here (I consider you to be among those ranks too!) for a change.
Unfortunately, this website is most definitely run by the bad guys. I observed first hand, comments by you and myself in this thread that had +4 votes be changed in a matter of minutes into double digit negatives. This could only happen if moderators used their administrative power to alter votes.
You are most definitely one of the very few 'good guys' here oralloy. I'm so sorry for all the undeserved abuse you suffer.
You are a better person than this place.
