As much as I enjoy going on this web page and posting my opinions and or answers to the topics I do realize that there are priorities in life that determine what you have time to do and what you need to do . I had a pretty bad stretch where I had some health issues , Lost my Dad and combined with coaching my J.V baseball team I was absent from this forum for a good six to eight weeks. I returned happy to see I hadn't really missed a beat and jumped back in with my two cents wherever I felt inclined to do so. My question ? It's pretty quiet around here , what happened to Barry ?
He is noticeably absent !!!

  I miss Barry's presence on the board.  The extremes and the insults to poor defenseless Mr. Kerins and our fearless leader in DC were a little hard to take sometimes, but Barry contributed very positively and interestingly on a wide variety of topics, and I hope he joins in again.  Maybe he is preparing for Burning Man, and is too busy building some giant body part to be immolated on the Playa.

Leave me out of this Billy Boy! I had nothing to do with his leaving. So unfortunately, can't take any credit it for.

Ok gents and ladies for that matter " I gots to know "  ( stolen shamelessly from a Dirty Harry movie ) I went back and read some old posts and threads from the time I was gone and couldn't find a clue. Guess when Tony wipes a crime scene down it's wiped. Not a clue or fingerprint to be found. If you don't want to post it email me privately please !!!!!!!!! Somebody !!!

I'm not sure what you're saying here and I'm not even sure which Tony you are referring to.  Nothing has been "wiped". People leave the board from time to time.  Many just stop posting but read the posts.  Some come back, some don't.  I don't question people.  The board is here for those who want to participate.  Barry's email is available to registered posters.  Why don't you go to the source?


BTW, Sorry to hear about your "bad stretch", especially the loss of your father.

Tony , I'm sorry if I implied there was some hanky panky going on . I didn't mean it as an insult. It was all supposed to be tongue in cheek. Not being a computer whiz I figured if there had been an "exchange" that wasn't appropriate or even a "fight" that it would have been purged as content not fit to be posted. In that scenario , any "wiping " that would have been done would have been done thoroughly and professionally. ( A compliment) I tried to go back and read all the posts from the time of my absence and couldn't come up with a raised voice or insult in the lot.( At least not out of the norm) Add in the missing man theory and I assumed the worse and the solution I alluded to. I'm a big fan of the old saying from the Odd Couple when you assume you make an ASS of u and ME. I really didn't know Barry very well except for the exchanges back  and forth on this board. I didn't think to write him personally and inquire about his absence. I will take your advice and try that. Again my apologies for casting dispersions on your name and reputation.  Thank you for the condolences on my Dad.

He's too busy to write. As I said, he moved to France. But what I didn't say is he was on his honeymoon with Geraldine Ferrara (not to be confused with the more well-known Geraldine Ferraro).

WG tends to let the site expand and contract on its own with as little course correction as possible. In recent months, I know of at least three posters who were contributing regularly who chose to stop posting due to the tenor of the discussions. A recent thread was deleted but it was deleted by the creator of the thread not by any of the moderators.

Sorry, I thought your apology was to Tony (WG) not Tony (me). But if you were directing to both of us, I can only speak for myself and -- though I never took offense to your posting -- I humbly accept your apology. Now Web Guy, on the other hand, is a much less forgiving sort and I wouldn't be surprised if he never posts again.

Actually the apology was to whoever took offense at the posting in the first place. I should have said "Tony WG" I wasn't talking about you " and then "Tony 71  I wasn't talking about you "    I was talking about Tony Soprano he sent Paulie Walnuts , Christopher and Silvio to sanitize da place . Nobody sees nuthin nobody knows nuthin !!!
