PLEASE STOP…   2 comments

TO THE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN DEFACING POSTS ON THE SITE, PLEASE STOP.

 

IF I OFFENDED YOU IN SOME WAY, AS IN USING AN IMAGE YOU THINK I SHOULDN’T HAVE USED, I AM SORRY. I NEVER OFFEND PEOPLE DELIBERATELY.

 

I AM AN OLD MAN AND A FAIRLY SICK ONE. THE DEFACING IS STRESSFUL.

 

DESPITE COUNTLESS HOURS OF WORK OVER THE YEARS, I MAKE NOT ONE PENNY FROM THIS SITE.

 

IT HAS BEEN A LABOR OF LOVE FOR PEOPLE EVERYWHERE JUST TO ENJOY.

 

I AM REMOVING PERMANENTLY THE POSTS YOU DEFACED, ASSUMING YOU SELECTED THEM FOR A REASON. CAN WE PLEASE LEAVE IT AT THAT?

 

THANK YOU, JOHN CHUCKMAN
